Mr Patrick Patnode
President of Licensing
For many years, big corporations kept patents largely exclusive and under wraps. But as business models and landscapes have
changed, so have views of intellectual property management. In this keynote speech, Pat Patnode, the President of Licensing at GE,
will share insights into the world of Licensing 2.0, where companies actively seek out and collaborate with those who can apply their
inventions and ideas to new industries and offerings. Pat will discuss the importance of these partnerships and why this approach to
licensing helps accelerate the rollout of breakthrough technology that can transform industries, drive growth and improve lives.
