RE:  Engagement Letter for Strategic Intellectual Property Consulting Services


Dear Fawad:


ipCapital Group (“ipCG”) appreciates the opportunity to assist you with strategic intellectual property (IP) issues.  Based on our discussion with you, ipCG understands that you are an experienced inventor with valuable IP that improves Microwave Amplifier technology. Furthermore, the discussion about your IP that AmpliTech continues to develop has considerable technical strength. We also understand that your solution is capable of providing low noise amplification even at higher frequencies, and moreover, the technology has the potential to lead to patents that implement the system on an integrated circuit. We also understand that you desire to position your IP to demonstrate value to investors, partners, and/or M&A stakeholders.




If you have any questions or require additional information, please feel free to contact us at any time.  Thank you very much for your consideration.


Our proposal is designed to assist you via the following phases:



· Phase 1: Extract your invention concepts via our ipScan® process





· Phase 2: Develop an ipStory® to demonstrate the value of IP to current and future investors

We look forward to applying our expertise, resources, knowledge of best practices, and proprietary methods to help you meet your business objectives


This letter sets forth the terms of our proposed engagement and the services that ipCG will perform for you.  We look forward to continuing our relationship with you through this work.


Best regards,


John Cronin,


Chairman and Managing Director


ipCapital Group 





1. Detailed Work Plan


2. Detailed Terms






Phase 1: Extract invention concepts via the ipScan® process


Companies typically have a rich source of potential inventions that exist in the heads of inventors, scientists, and engineers, who may struggle to find the time and resources to properly capture those ideas and feed them into the IP protection process, so that they can be managed.  ipCG will use a proprietary ipScan® process (used over the last 21 years with great success at 100s of companies) to extract existing concepts and then help to broaden them across multiple thinking axes (time, supply chain, invention type, etc.) to capture invention ideas from your personnel.  This potential IP will be categorized and prioritized for selection of concepts for documentation, as described in phase 2. 


Phase 2:  Develop an ipStory® to demonstrate the value of IP to current and future investors


ipCG will develop an objective, high-level presentation that communicates the depth, breadth, power, and strategic value of your platform and IP portfolio. ipCG will develop the presentation in a way that demonstrates the synergy of your IP, and integrate the business value to the potential acquirer, a high-level business, market, product, technology and IP integration.
