Join moderator Richard Venerus (Venerus Advisory Partners – meet Richard below the event description) and panelists Ian Buchanan (Exergy Solutions); Marty Reed (Evok Innovations); and John Goetz (EnerNext Partners) on an exploration of the underlying problem in how the innovator gets rewarded for their idea.

Is there a way to co-develop technology and IP with shared reward and shared risk between innovators and producers right from the beginning, to accelerate the process and reduce barriers?  What does that look like?

Share your perspectives and experiences, including ideas on alternative models. Together we’ll explore and learn:

  • The underlying motivations driving behaviors to protect or leverage IP
  • Alternative models to IP strategies
  • Successes from other industries having different business models to accelerate innovation
  • Challenges with an industry operator/producer’s gated IP development process
  • Conditions for successful IP strategies
