What questions will you be asked?

Paul Mantle of Frontier IP Group will host an informal discussion on commercialisation of new technologies and some of the questions that need to considered in evaluating their potential.  He will provide some case studies and engage the audience in a discussion on what are some of the key metrics.

Paul is a Portfolio Executive at Frontier IP Group and based in Cambridge. He has over 17 years experience with Ciba-Geigy (later to become Novartis) in the commercialisation of new technology for semi-conductors  and electronics.  As Director and General Manager for 3 global businesses (and based at various times in Singapore, Hong Kong and Basle) he brings practical experience of international business leadership. Most recently as a member of the University of Cambridge in the period 2013/16 he has led the commercialisation of a number of innovative technologies.

Refreshments will be available and all are welcome to join the discussion.
