Financial patent quality : finance patents after State Street by Joshua Lerner( Archival Material )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
In the past two decades, patents of inventions related to financial services ("finance patents"), as well as litigation around these patents, have surged. One of the repeated concerns voiced by academics and practitioners alike has been about the quality of these patents in particular, and business method patents more generally. In particular, because so much of the prior work in these areas has not been patented, concerns have been expressed as to the extent to which the awards reflect this knowledge. Inspired by these issues, this paper empirically examines the quality of finance patents in the years after the landmark litigation between State Street Bank and Signature Financial Group. We show that relative to two sets of comparison groups, finance patents in aggregate cite fewer non-patent publications and especially fewer academic publications. This finding holds across the major assignee groups. In addition, it appears that patents assigned to individuals and associated with non-practicing entities (NPEs) cite less academic work than those assigned to non-NPE corporations. While not statistically significant due to the small number of academic citations in finance patents, we observe qualitatively similar patterns of under-citation when we restrict our analysis to finance patents held by individuals and NPEs, as opposed to non-NPE corporations. These findings raise questions about the quality of finance patents. We also explore litigated finance patents and discuss how the results here may reflect differences in the quality of finance patents relative to other areas. We find that, as earlier work has suggested, finance patents are more likely to be litigated than non-finance patents, but increased academic citations appear to reduce that possibility relative to others. Collectively, these findings raise important questions about the quality of finance patents and the proliferation of litigation in this domain

Creating a venture ecosystem in Brazil : FINEP's INOVAR project by Ann Leamon( Archival Material )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
In 2000, the Brazilian government's Agency for Innovation (Financiadora de Estudos e Projectos, or FINEP) with support from the Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF) unveiled a program to address these needs. FINEP had spent a year assessing the obstacles and challenges that confronted technology-based small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). The result was the program called INOVAR (Innovation). In the 12 years since INOVAR's debut, the program has had two iterations (INOVAR I, from 2001-2006, and INOVAR II, from 2007 - 2012) and has been recognized as a role model for government efforts to stimulate a venture capital ecosystem. In many cases, this paper will discuss the two phases as a single entity, largely because the two merged quite naturally. We present here a brief background on private equity in both Latin America and Brazil, and then explore the genesis of INOVAR, the details of the program, and its results. The paper concludes with challenges to be addressed

Adding value through venture capital in Latin America and the Caribbean by Josh Lerner( Archival Material )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Venture capital (VC) investment has long been recognized as an engine for economic growth and development. Unlike bank loans, where the entrepreneur receives money and is left alone as long as the payments arrive on the pre-arranged schedule, venture capital investments add the quality of active investing to the cash infusion. In exchange for taking on the risk of young companies in uncertain environments, venture capitalists receive board level oversight privileges, which range from approval of budgets and advice on product development to the right to replace the management team should they consistently under-perform. This activity, performed by individuals with substantial experience in shepherding young companies to maturity, creates substantial value in the portfolio company
