Venture Jobs Foundation plans forum

Rochester Business Journal
October 14, 2013

The Venture Jobs Foundation, a local not-for-profit investor in small businesses in distressed neighborhoods, is sponsoring a forum Wednesday on maximizing value from intellectual property.

The event begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Inn on Broadway, 26 Broadway in Rochester.

Presenters include Jeremy Salesin, vice president of acquisitions at Intellectual Ventures in Seattle; Timothy Lynch, chief IP officer at Eastman Kodak Co.; and Thomas Anderson, a partner at Harter, Secrest & Emery LLP in Rochester.

The Venture Jobs Foundation was launched in June 2012 by Trillium Group LLC general partners Dennis DeLeo and Frank Strong Jr. but operates separately from the Perinton private equity firm.

Its office in Rochester is at 100 Chestnut Street. It also has an office in Syracuse.
