China Technology Exchange Offers Monetization Opportunity For US And European Patent Owners

Last week’s IPBC featured a break-out session called “Lift-off in China” to talk about the country’s recent focus on innovation and IP as a growth strategy for future prosperity.  The panel featured, among others, Zeng Yun, Deputy Director of IP transactions at the China Technology Exchange. CTEX is a subsidiary of the China Beijing Equity Exchange founded in 2009 to provide a platform for technology and IP transactions for Chinese companies. Last year, CTEX held a patent auction attracting over 70 participants and selling 2.8 Billion RMB (roughly $400 MM USD) worth of Chinese patents. I caught up with Yun on Tuesday to talk about what CTEX is planning for an encore.
