Douglas Flood, former VP of Corporate Development at Mercury Computer Systems, is the keynote at this event focusing on how to maximize the value of intellectual property. Flood should have some insights to share: at Mercury, he “led more than 13 merger and acquisition transactions and 12 other strategic alliances or licensing agreements during his 11-year tenure,” according to the event description. This forum is designed to go beyond licensing and dive into “the nuts and bolts of maximizing IP as an asset, discussing less traditional approaches.” More details and registration information can be found here.
