Course introduction Anja Zimmermann, Analyst & Equity Management, Ascenion GmbH, Germany 09.15 - 10.15 Evaluating technology opportunities Very few of the disclosures we receive are likely to form the basis of a good patent – fewer still (maybe 1 in 10) have any commercial potential. Moreover, we simply don’t have the time to manage too many projects at once. How then should we evaluate and rank the disclosures we get and how should we reject the ones that we decide not to pursue.
