The Executive Advisory Council

Members of the Early X Executive Advisory Council have all demonstrated a strong affinity for the Early X Foundation and our mission to be one of the leading IP monetization education organizations globally.  Each Advisor has provided specific support to further expand, market, fundraise and network Early X.  Through their support we are connecting to laboratories, companies and individuals with intellectual property that have the potential to be commercially monetized in multiple new vertical markets. Additionally, the Executive Advisory Council members have aided our efforts to secure support from some of the most successful business executives to leverage our IP Discovery Process.
