Seeking innovative solutions for:

Kent Baker

Innovation Banking and Development

White Space Whisperer

Kent has a passion for understanding cutting edge technologies, a unique ability to conceptualize how they can be applied in other markets, and the wisdom to see the development path to make it all work. He is a creative out-of-the-box brainstormer with the experience to know when to be pragmatic and level-headed.

Kent has served in key corporate roles developing global intellectual property assets and innovation strategies for several Fortune 100 companies. As the Chief Intellectual Property Officer at PARC, he harmonized laboratory research with product development to drive early stage technology monetization.

As Vice President of Intellectual Property for Qualcomm, he set up and protected the business model and assets that currently generate over 20 billion dollars in annual revenue. Kent is active in international intellectual property rights, working with businesses, governments, regulatory agencies, patent offices, scientific communities, and standards organizations in China, India, Vietnam, European Union, and the U.S. to develop national and industry specific intellectual property policy, regulations, and business best practices. He has deep experience in mobile communications, IoT, healthcare, medical devices, metallurgy, metamaterials, data harvesting and related applications, digital automation and digital cities, microprocessors, and ICN based network architectures underlying drone, driverless car, and IoT services.

Kent excels at bringing together individuals and institutions interested in investing in both early stage and mature technologies, but only after coupling the technology with a promising business plan.
