TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER TACTICS is pleased to offer an educational program in partnership with Business Valuation Resources, Inc.

Existing valuation models tend to focus on the economic value of individual patents by using the net present value of the patent, market value, historic cost, etc. While such models are undoubtedly useful, an alternative approach is to rank patents based on where they sit in relation to a network of similar patents. Network-based analysis allows the review of up to several hundred thousand patents, and draws upon the “collective intelligence” of this network to identify high-value technology areas and the most likely valuable patents within these areas.

In this exclusive program, Mike Lloyd, an IP management consultant at Griffith Hack in Melbourne, Australia, and Doris Spielthenner, co-founder and managing director of Ambercite, a patent analysis company also in Melbourne, join BVR to talk about this innovative approach to patent valuation, how the process works, and why it can be just what inventors need to most accurately predict the value of their patents.
