The IPwe Platform productizes CEO Erich Spangenberg’s previous IP strategies. Erich selected (based on predictive and then AI analytics developed with an investment of $40 million) and took principal positions in companies based on their IP value. Employing this strategy, Erich and the IPwe team have completed $2.5+ billion in licensing, financing and acquisition transactions. The strategies from this proven track record are reflected in IPwe’s AI-driven IP analytics, proprietary algorithms and databases.
