Valuation of Emerging Technologies Seminar comes to town

IP Finance understands that the Business Development Academy (BDA)'s Valuation of Emerging Technologies Seminar, developed in the United States, is on its way to Europe.  This is an unusual seminar in that it explains and analyses the applicability of over a dozen valuation methodologies including the following:
• Total Value Extraction
• Probability Weighted Expected Return Method
• Monte Carlo Analysis
• Real Options
• Binomial Lattices
• Decision Trees
• Market Method
For those who like to sink their teeth into something substantial, this seminar will be treating its European participants to the unveiling of the Patent Valuation Gauntlet.  This reputedly consists of more than 400 issues which, the seminar's architects maintain, should be included in patent analysis. The categories to be discussed will include the "usual suspects" such as Citation Analysis, Prosecution History, Claims Analysis, Investor Profile and Sustainability in Opposition, and lots more besides.

This course is one of the four courses required to earn the Certified Patent Valuation Analyst designation. The London course will be held on March 14 and in Amsterdam on March 17.  The venue of the London seminar is the offices of Holborn-based law firm Collyer Bristow. More information about this course—including registration details—is available here.
