Intellectual 'vutures' or 'ventures'? Investment Firm Hopes to Turn Patents Into Invention Capital Market - NYTimes.com
Investment Firm Hopes to Turn Patents Into Invention Capital Market - NYTimes.com
This is very interesting indeed.
I think if their goals are more equitable, namely 'balancing' the power between corporate that uses patents to make things/services, and designers so that they are treated as 'ventures'.. and create a sustainable model.
seems to me it is still very much 'deal' focused, rolle them up, sell them on..
which as we have seen from the capital market, is well, too short term focused now!
