Imagine you just recently acquired a fitness technology company for upwards of $150 million and shortly thereafter you are sued by your biggest competitor over alleged willful infringement of 10 of their patents. Could this have been avoided? Should this have been avoided? What could have been done to at least become informed of the potential risks and calculate them into the deal or acquisition price?
We all know that bad data leads to bad decisions, and sometimes those bad decisions can be extremely costly. Simply put, making decisions with bad data or incomplete data sets is like building a house on a compromised foundation.
This free webinar will approach this material first from the lens of the dealmaker who needs to know that they have all the relevant information necessary to confidently assess value and close a deal. We will ask, and answer, the question about which information can prove to be most useful and why. We will then pivot the discussion to bring in data experts to discuss how they work to find that information and deliver it as actionable intelligence so that good decisions are made with good data.
Join me on Thursday, January 26, 2017, at 12pm ET for a free webinar discussion that will focus on decision making for dealmakers. Joining me will be Jaime Siegel, CEO of Cerebral Assets, an intellectual property advisory firm that focuses on advising clients on building and maximizing the value of their intellectual property portfolios. Prior to starting Cerebral Assets Siegel was Vice-President of Acacia Research, where he was engaged in litigation management and licensing, and before then he was Vice-Presdient and Senior IP Counsel of Sony Corporation of America, where he managed worldwide patent litigation and portfolio licensing for Sony. Siegel will talk first hand about real world situations where having the solid, actionable information was crucial, and situations where not having good information proved costly.
Also joining us will be Dr. Marwan Hassoun, who is the Founder, President and CEO of Green Semiconductor. Hassoun has over 24 years of experience in the semiconductor industry, including startups, and academia. His expertise covers the areas of design, production and intellectual property. Hassoun uses state of the art data technology tools to uncover good, actionable information that decision makers and dealmakers need in order to close deals with confidence. He will discuss the importance of making sure one understands not only what the clients says they want, but what they really need in order to provide the best information that answers the critical questions.
Joining us will also be Tyron Stading, who founded Innography in 2006 with a vision of redefining the intelligence/analytics landscape. As President and Founder of Innography, Stading is responsible for the technology that drives Innography data solutions and tools. Stading will talk about data and all the hidden secrets it holds if you know where and how to look.
