IV in the Community: May and June


IV in the Community: May and June

May 11, 2015

We’ve got a busy spring and summer coming up at Intellectual Ventures, not the least of which is a diverse line-up of events we’ll be participating in over the next few months.

From the power of impact investing to the business of intellectual property (IP), we always welcome opportunities to speak to new audiences and talk with old friends about the power of invention and IP.

  • On May 12, senior vice president of Global Good and Research Maurizio Vecchione will participate in a panel on impact investing at the Cavendish Global Health Forum in La Jolla, California. The event brings together family offices and their foundations from around the world for focused conversations on sustainable philanthropy.
  • On May 13, director Troy Niehaus will also travel to La Jolla to speak on a panel about commercial success in advanced science and technology at the Licensing Executive Society (LES) Spring Meeting. LES is a membership organization of IP professionals, and its conferences provide a unique opportunity for peers to connect and discuss the latest issues impacting the industry. 
  • On June 12, CEO Nathan Myhrvold will give the 2015 college commencement address at UCLA in Los Angeles. Nathan received a bachelor’s in mathematics and a master’s degree in geophysics and space physics at UCLA before going on to get his PhD in theoretical and mathematical physics at Princeton, and he’s looking forward to returning to speak to this year’s new graduates.
  • Finally on June 15, Phyllis Turner-Brim, vice president and chief IP counsel, will participate in the opening panel discussion at IPBC’s Global Conference in San Francisco. Phyllis and the other distinguished speakers will talk with Michelle Lee, deputy director of the USPTO, about the current state of the invention ecosystem.

If you’re attending any of these conferences, we hope that you’ll join us in the discussions. For more information about IV speaking engagements or to inquire about a speaker for your event, please contact speakingrequests@intven.com
