Intellectual Ventures Happy Hour

When: Back to Calendar November 7, 2013 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm



Join us for an evening of invention and discovery. Geoff Deane, PhD and VP/GM of the IV Laboratory, will present a side of Intellectual Ventures you may not have seen. As SURF’s newest sponsor, IV knows the important role small businesses play in shaping the future. IV believes in the power of invention to change the world, creating an active market for inventors, entrepreneurs, universities and corporations to buy, sell and license their inventions around the world.

As an entrepreneur, inventor, engineer, business leader, and inspirational presenter, Geoff will showcase some of IV’s latest inventions, outlining lessons learned in the lab, and discussing how failing fast may help you succeed faster. Whether you’re curious about Intellectual Ventures, fascinated by cool inventions, or just want a shot of inspiration, this is a happy hour not to be missed.

Intellectual Ventures is an invention capital company. We are building an active market for invention that allows buyers, sellers, and inventors to realize value for their ideas. We file patents on our own inventions, we purchase patents, and we collaborate with inventors, universities, governments, and companies around the world. Through a variety of licensing products and services, we provide our customers access to the invention rights they need.
