Pete Conley, Know Labs’ CFO and SVP of IP, will share his perspective into why a strategically developed IP portfolio serves as the foundation for long-term value creation
SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Know Labs (NYSE American: KNW), an emerging developer of non-invasive medical diagnostic technology, today announced that Pete Conley, its Chief Financial Officer and Senior Vice President of Intellectual Property (IP), will speak at the upcoming 2023 Intellectual Property Business Congress (IPBC) Global event in June – the world’s largest gathering of leaders and decision-makers operating in the global IP market.
Mr. Conley is participating as a panelist in a discussion titled, “Make Your CFO an IP Believer,” with other IP leaders from HP, Uber, and Deloitte. With over 35 years of experience at the intersection of IP-related corporate finance, investment banking, and the forecasting of emerging technologies, Conley will speak to how a CFO should consider IP as a company’s most valuable asset, including avoiding the cost-center trap and explaining why a diversified, strategically developed IP portfolio can be the key to an organization’s success. He will also highlight how Know Labs became a global IP leader in the non-invasive blood glucose monitoring category and the biggest challenges currently facing IP leaders.
“From my decades of experience in the IP space, I have developed a deep understanding of the correlation between patent leadership and value creation, and I am eager to delve into this topic with my colleagues at IPBC,” said Mr. Conley. “At Know Labs, patents and IP are the bedrock of our strategy for industry leadership. From this discussion, I’m hopeful my unique perspective can inform other leaders about how these essential roles can work harmoniously together and create sustainable competitive advantage and long-term shareholder value.”
Mr. Conley has spearheaded Know Labs’ IP strategy for the past three years as the company continues to expand its industry-leading patent portfolio. As of March 31, 2023, Know Labs has been ranked by ipCapital Group, a leading patent analytics firm, as the number one patent holder in non-invasive glucose monitoring with more than 159 patents issued and pending, a 62 percent increase from 2022’s year-end total of 98 patents issued and pending. This increase reinforces Know Labs’ goal of positioning itself as the leading worldwide IP holder in non-invasive blood glucose monitoring, and leveraging IP as key to its foundational business strategy. Currently, blood glucose monitoring is the company’s clinical focus; however, the extensive patent portfolio for its Bio-RFID™ technology platform reflects more expansive applications in areas across medical diagnostics, clinical research and industrial analytics.
Mr. Conley’s panel discussion will take place on June 14th from 1 – 2 p.m. PT at IPBC Global 2023 in San Diego, CA. For more information on his session, visit events.iam-media.com/event/. To learn more about Know Labs, visit https://www.knowlabs.co/.
