“Infringement Portfolios” and Pure Emerging Technology Portfolios


Roughly half of the portfolios we sell are “infringement portfolios” and half are pure emerging technology. We like both, but the emerging technology portfolio typically has a longer sales cycle.


Out of the Box


We spend 10% of our time doing crazy out of the box sales because we believe that is the only way to find and understand new markets. So sometimes our reaction to one of these portfolios is, as Richard Branson said, “Screw it, let’s do it”.
