Martin Brassell, co-founder and CEO of innovative UK intellectual property and intangible asset specialists Inngot, recently took part in a two day training webinar on Intellectual Property Valuation, organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII).
Over the weekend of September 19th and 20th, 2020, Martin delivered two sessions, one on patent valuation techniques and the second on the use of patents as collateral in funding and the securitization of IP.
This is not the first time Martin Brassell has been invited to speak at CII events; in December 2019, he delivered a presentation on IP-backed lending at the 5th International Conference on IP Rights: Innovation and IP led Technology for a $5 Trillion Economy in New Delhi on December 3rd and 4th 2019.
It was co-hosted by CII, Intellectual Property India and the Indian Government’s Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade, and supported by the UK IPO.
Martin is a recognised global expert on the use of Intellectual Property and intangible assets in raising finance for businesses. He recently co-authored an influential report from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) on Fostering the use of intangibles to strengthen SME access to finance, published in January 2019, and is currently working on a follow-up report for the OECD.
Inngot’s mission is to stimulate debate on the value locked up in companies’ intellectual property and intangible assets and how they can be helped to access and leverage that value. It works closely with Government bodies in the UK and around the world, as well as with NGOs, industry and trade associations, and Intellectual Property Offices.
It also directly helps companies via its innovative and award-winning suite of online tools to help businesses identify, manage and value their intellectual property and intangible assets, and offers other IP and technology audit and evaluation services.
In addition to the recent OECD report, Martin Brassell has also co-authored Economic Approaches to Intellectual Property, with Dr Nicola Searle (OUP, 2016), and reports and publications for the UK’s Intellectual Property Office (IPO) and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), amongst others.
