Wolves’ Den Orientation Video
Similar to the popular Shark Tank television show, New Mexico Tech’s own Wolves’ Den will feature inventors presenting their ideas to a panel of successful, experienced investors and entrepreneurs. Presenters will be selected based on invention summaries submitted to a NMT committee. The basis for the Wolves’ Den is intellectual property (IP). All presenting inventors will be showcasing commercialization ideas that are built around IP that is either protected or protectable.
IP may be protected in many ways, including patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets. There is no restriction on the type of protection – or potential protection – but all Wolves’ Den presentations will be IP based.
Wolves’ Den presenters will be competing for funding and/or legal in-kind services that may be used to advance their innovation to commercialization.
The Wolves’ Den panel is set to consist of six members who are prominent investors and early- stage commercialization experts who come from New Mexico, New York City, and Palo Alto, CA.
Inventors attending the workshop cannot bring their prototypes, etc. to the event unless they have been chosen as a Wolves Den presenter.
