Meet Applied Licensing

2017 Gold Service Provider Member

Applied LicensingCombining backgrounds in patent law, engineering, and public policy, the attorneys who founded Applied Licensing bring value to startup companies through a combination of angel level investment, intellectual property portfolio development, and intellectual property monetization.  “We work with startup companies and inventors to construct a cost effective intellectual property portfolio that supports their strategic business needs, and helps make their companies and intellectual property attractive targets for investment,” explains Thomas Baumgarten, Jr., President of Applied Licensing.  “Companies with existing intellectual property assets use Applied Licensing to help monetize those assets and generate additional value through them, including through generation of royalties or sales revenues, or through concluding strategic licensing relationships.”

Applied Licensing also uses its expertise to provide intellectual property portfolio analysis to investors and companies considering an investment in or acquisition of a target company, giving investors and acquiring entities a more informed understanding of the nature of a given deal.

“Applied Licensing helps Michigan inventors, entrepreneurs, startups, established companies, and investors realize maximum return from intellectual property assets that would otherwise be underutilized,” says Maureen Miller Brosnan, executive director of MVCA.  “That grows the value in our entrepreneurial and investment community by letting portfolio companies and their investors reap the full benefit of their investment.  It’s an important and unique service for our community.”
