Katharine “Kathy” Ku, Chief Licensing Advisor, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati – Palo Alto office
Kathy served as the Executive Director of Stanford University’s Office of Technology Licensing (OTL) for 27 years. During that period, OTL licensed out hundreds of new technologies, bringing in $1.8 billion, most of which went back to support research and education at Stanford. Because Stanford’s OTL licensed many start-ups, including Google, Tableau, iRhythm, she understands the challenges of building a successful company through a robust intellectual property portfolio.
