In today's rapidly evolving business landscape, technology businesses hold the key to innovation, employment, and economic growth. For those decision-makers aiming to maximise the value of their enterprises through an eventual sale, the "Build-to-sell" forum provides invaluable insights and strategies. Organised by the European Patent Office and the Licensing Executives Society International (LESI) as a part of their High-Growth Technology Business (HTB) initiative, this event provides a platform to learn from successful case studies and explore the intellectual assets that drive business value.  


On 29 June 2023, the virtual stage will be set for the "Build-to-sell" forum, attracting decision-makers from high-growth technology businesses, IP professionals, investors, researchers, and market facilitators. This interactive event, conducted in English, aims to empower participants with the knowledge and strategies needed to build a company with the ultimate goal of an exit that realises its true value. 


Building for success 


Building a company with an exit strategy in mind requires a long-term vision and a focused objective. The seminar dives deep into case studies from successful businesses that have achieved substantial value through selling. These case studies serve as a wellspring of inspiration, offering practical lessons and real-world examples to guide decision-makers on their own paths to success. 


At the heart of the "build-to-sell" forum lies an exhaustive exploration of three crucial intellectual assets: technology, brand, and operational excellence. Participants will gain a thorough understanding of how these assets can be strategically leveraged to maximise business value and attract potential buyers. Through engaging discussions, the forum highlights the importance of nurturing and optimising these assets to create a robust foundation for future success. 


Meet the visionaries 


A standout feature of the forum is the presence of esteemed speakers and industry experts. Dr. Ghassan Kassab, founder and CEO of 3DT Holdings and the California Medical Innovations Institute, brings his wealth of experience to the table. His impressive portfolio of 300+ patents and 600+ publications/proceedings in the medical field makes him an invaluable source of knowledge. His insights on building an innovation engine, technology divestments, exclusive technology licenses, and spin-off ventures provide a unique perspective for participants. 


The "Build-to-sell" seminar transcends geographical boundaries by bringing together experts from Europe, Asia, and North America. By tapping into the diverse perspectives and experiences of these global thought leaders, participants gain a comprehensive understanding of how high-tech companies can serve as platforms for serial exits through spin-off venturing. The forum delves into the strategies and best practices employed by science-driven companies to ensure their technologies not only generate profits but also leave a lasting global impact upon exit. 


Beyond the enriching discussions and case studies, the forum offers participants the chance to engage in a "meet-the-speakers" session and further discussions. This valuable networking opportunity allows attendees to connect with industry professionals, forge new partnerships, and exchange ideas. The potential for collaboration and synergies fostered during this session is immeasurable. 


By focusing on three key intellectual assets - technology, brand, and operational excellence - the forum underscores the importance of a holistic approach to value creation. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of how to develop and leverage their technology portfolios, build strong and recognisable brands, and optimise operational efficiency to enhance business performance and appeal to potential acquirers.
