Mr. Phelps, often called the “father” of modern corporate patent strategy, led IBM’s transformation into the world-leader in patented inventions in the 1990s, at the same time transforming its anemic patent licensing program into a $2 billion-a-year revenue stream for the company.

Chief Marketing Officer and Patent Strategy Counsel
ipCreate is the world’s premiere Invention On DemandR company, focused solely on enabling innovation through the creation of high-quality, high-value patentable inventions. We partner with global companies to complement their internal R&D efforts, helping them to respond better and faster to disruptive technology and market changes. ipCreate employs its proprietary tools to identify promising innovation areas or “white spaces” of importance to our clients and then utilizes its unique forward-invent/patenting capabilities to generate new IP to quality, speed and market relevance in these areas. The ipCreate vision derives from two industry pioneers, IBM and Microsoft’s former head of worldwide IP and IBM’s head of the highly successful “IBM Patent Factory.” The company has added other industry veterans to the leadership team to rapidly scale the business. At our core is patent quality, and the acquisition of Article One Partners in 2014 introduced a proven and effective crowd-based approach to prior art discovery forward into the invention process itself to ensure the highest levels of quality control.
