Corporations invest billions of dollars in R&D, but not all of the resulting innovation aligns with the corporate strategy. Licensing or selling the resulting IP rights are common ways to generate a return on the R&D investment. However, other creative deal structures such as joint ventures, or spin-outs can sometimes provide significantly higher long-term value and other additional strategic benefits, such as establishing footholds in new markets. Hear about recent transactions that included transfer of IP assets from senior executives.
