Thoughts About IP Investment Strategy in Nanotechnology

Abstract:
A number of VC funds, such as Nanotech Capital LLC, have implemented an intellectual property (IP) investment strategy recently for nanotechnology. A typical IP investment strategy is buying up IP or patent or licensing rights to some well known university or even some lesser known university. Often it is done in a carpet-bombing approach where a whole slew of IP is included in the portfolio being purchased without regard to what it is. This is not all that different than the carpet-bomb approach of some VC's trying to invest in the nanotech space because they don't understand it.
