Rob Frohwein, chief executive officer and co-founder of Kabbage, will deliver the keynote at the 13th IP Hot Topics Luncheon at Georgia State University College of Law at noon, Wednesday, May 10, at the Knowles Conference Center, 85 Park Place NE.
“Rob has leveraged his legal experience and empathy for businesses needing working capital into co-founding a modern unicorn,” said Scott Frank (J.D./M.B.A. ’94), chair of Georgia State Law’s IP Advisory Board. “Rob and his team developed not only game-changing technology, but also created one of the most rewarding workplaces in the U.S. He has a unique perspective on the intersection of patents, software, finance and ideation.”
Frohwein will share his experiences going from a practicing attorney to a global entrepreneur who raised nearly $1 billion based on patented IP (intellectual property) for a global-lending technology platform. An accomplished author and former radio host, Frohwein will entertain attendees with his vision of the changing industrial and financial climate.
The event will be preceded by the fourth annual IP Think Tank, an invitation-only gathering of leaders in the Atlanta IP ecosystem. A white paper on IP management is expected as a result.
