IP Valuation in Early Stage Investments - Webinar Today - sign up!

You are invited to join OxFirst for a webinar today at 3pm - 4pm GMT for talk on IP Valuation in Early Stage Investments presented by John E. Dubiansky: 
What this talk is about
The adequate valuation of patents plays a crucial element in vital markets for technology, while at the same time allowing investors to make an educated investment decision.  In spite of that, investors lack adequate knowledge on how to value patents. The major challenge does not seem to be that patents cannot be valued for financial purposes, but rather that investors are quite ignorant about patents and are not well informed on their risk and reward structures. Against this background, this talk helps shed light on IP valuation and demystify a concept crucial to building markets for intellectual property.
