What is your company’s IP strategy? Companies of every size have a critical new management issue – IP or intellectual property. This critical issue is the focus of ICAP Patent Brokerage’s Summit on Intellectual Property Strategy, a unique gathering at one of the California coast’s historic locales – the Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes.

There, a keynote address will be delivered by Louis Foreman, founder and Chief Executive of Enventys, a cutting-edge product design and engineering firm, and CEO of Edison Nation. A frequent speaker on small business creation and innovation, Foreman’s keynote will focus on “Building Company Value through IP”, with “lessons from Mom, Pop, David and Goliath”. Foreman notes that in the area of IP strategy, “one size does not fit all”.

Foreman would know. Since 2007 he has been the publisher of Inventors Digest, and creator, executive producer, and lead judge of the Emmy Award-Winning PBS show, Everyday Edisons, now in its fourth season.

The Summit on Intellectual Property Strategy is one of the key IP events of the year sponsored by ICAP Patent Brokerage, a global leader in intellectual property brokerage. In addition to Foreman, there will be a who’s who of intellectual property professionals, and one of the most fascinating pieces of IP reading material on the planet – the catalogue for the 15th ICAP Ocean Tomo IP Auction.

There, an amazing collection of the latest high-tech intellectual property will be in play – from patents for improved internet search functionality to fresh new ways to deflect electrons, to new ways to collect data from your cable TV.

ICAP CEO Dean Becker notes, “Today, more and more companies need an IP strategy. As manufacturing goes global, an increasing amount of profit margin and retained value comes from IP – intellectual property. At our IP Summit, we welcome firms of every size – from small start-ups to major multi-nationals.”
