Webcast: Meeting a Company’s Competitive Needs, Today and Into the Future

    By: Mark A Hart, NPDP on Mar 13, 2015

    During this webcast, Jay Walker and Jon Ellenthal will explore how to use the US patent system as an effective instrument for knowledge sharing and technology transfer. 

    This webcast will include a discussion about the innovation needs of companies today. Topics will include:

    • Finding third party R&D
    • Recent developments in research models
    • Capabilities to help companies leverage R&D budgets by 10-20 times
    • The impact of such changes on the cost-effectiveness of innovation acquisition, particular as this effects legal risk and the valuation of intellectual property
    • How to access the U.S. patent data base, the world’s largest library of innovation

    Jay Walker and Jon Ellenthal will share the concept of an innovation service provider. They will encourage attendees to move beyond thinking about the US patent database as a list of owned properties.

    Information is not sufficient. Companies need expertise to innovate. An innvaotion service provider facilitates access to the smartest people in the world.

    This service was launched in January of 2015. It is affordable for startups and small and mid-sized companies in all industries.

    Heidi Katherine Additional Questions and is there a recording available?
    By: Heidi Katherine | Posted: April 7, 2015, 7:45 am
    I am a new member of the PDMA association, and found this webinar to be so helpful.  I have a few additional questions below.  Thanks for your help and I am looking forward to becoming more involved in the association.  
    • I would love to understand an example of the process a company followed after they received your information, or be connected with someone who has used it to discuss this?
    • Additionally, why would an organization/person want to help my organization with all they have invested?  Can you talk about some push back or success stories regarding this?  

    Additionally, I have a coworker who missed the early part of the webinar and they would like to view it if there is a recording.  Will one be posted?

    Thank you for your assitance!
