Miami, New York, and Paris, December 1, 2021:
Lavinia Meliti has been promoted to the position of Global Head of Business Development for IPwe’s worldwide operations.
As Global Head of Business Development, Lavinia will continue to pursue strategic partnership opportunities, and be the operational focal point for the company’s business development initiatives. She is primarily responsible for the roll out of IPwe’s NFTs and Smart Pools.
“I am enthusiastic about IPwe’s future, and eager to support its evolvement from an IP information platform to an IP FinTech platform,” said Ms. Meliti. “IPwe drives innovation and changes the way people engage with IP. In the year I have been at IPwe, I have seen us pass from the educational phase to the adoption phase and I enjoy working with some of the most innovative companies in the world to transform how they think about innovation.”
“Lavinia has been instrumental in IPwe’s growth in the past year, especially for our Smart Pools,” said Erich Spangenberg, IPwe’s CEO. “Her promotion recognizes the vital role she has played – and will continue to play – in strengthening our industry-leading position in Europe, U.S., and Asia.”
IPwe is quickly emerging as creating the industry standard for patent NFTs. IPwe recently announced its partnership with IBM to represent patents as non-fungible tokens (NFTs). IPwe also has a partnership with CasperLabs to further improve the patent registration process and create a chain of custody (CoC) Solution by using the Casper public blockchain to store, secure, and trace patent data, thereby creating a new approach to patent ownership verification. Patent NFTs are stored and shared on the IPwe Platform, running on the IBM Cloud and Blockchain services such as the Casper Network. IPwe anticipates tokenized IP to become commercially available in Q4 of 2021. IPwe operates in more than 50 countries with offices in Asia, Europe, North and South America.
