With the addition of Dr. John Agostinelli, PLS Launch Solutions increases its capabilities in patent writing and intellectual property portfolio management. PLS Launch Solutions works with technology companies worldwide to create sustainable business models, launch new products, and enter new markets.
PLS President Michele Nichols Gleber notes: “Aside from Dr. Agostinelli’s deep technical expertise, John represents everything our customers count on PLS for: practical and business-focused guidance that helps bridge the gap between R&D and legal, and R&D and the market. John’s technical expertise meshes nicely with our existing customer base – and enables PLS to venture into new markets – to help businesses position their IP for greatest market traction and value.”
John Agostinelli earned his PhD in Optics from the University of Rochester, and served as a Research Fellow for Eastman Kodak Company before consulting. Agostinelli brings added depth to PLS’ work in securing and marketing intellectual property. He will also support the PLS team in creating and executing marketing strategy for optics, imaging, nanotech and materials science companies.
The addition of Dr. Agostinelli broadens PLS’ capabilities to serve customers like Cerion Enterprises, a materials science company focused on the commercialization of disruptive nano-technology in the energy, catalyst, power and biologics markets.
Ken Reed, CTO of Cerion Enterprises, states, “PLS has been a key partner in helping Cerion enter new markets quickly with confidence that our intellectual property is well protected. John’s materials science expertise will undoubtedly improve our go-to-market strategy with soon to be announced ground-breaking technology.”
Agostinelli states “As a customer, PLS was always valuable in writing patents for my research. Since I’ve moved into patent portfolio management, I’m enjoying working more broadly to help companies increase company value and revenues from their innovation.”
Agostinelli joins Louis Horvath, Registered Patent Agent, and a team of patent agents, writers, graphic designers, and business consultants to help technology companies protect and market their technology products.
