The Bright Lights Conference will showcase the untold IP stories of 50 public companies ranking in the 90th percentile for technology leadership from over 1,600 small cap companies with U.S. patents granted, as rated by PatentVest, MDB's proprietary IP business intelligence database. In addition to company presentations and one-on-one investor meetings, MDB will provide insightful IP analysis and objective data regarding the "Best and Brightest" companies presenting during this exclusive, invitation-only event.

The Bright Lights Conference underscores MDB's commitment to advancing the financial market's understanding of the hidden value of intellectual property assets and future technologic leadership. More than 1,600 small cap companies were scored, ranked and analyzed on the basis of their rate of innovative change; as well as the novelty, quality and industry impact of their patents. Back-tested IP and financial data will be presented for the first time to indicate the selection of companies on the basis of these IP metrics is correlated to benchmarked financial performance.

MDB Capital Group LLC is an institutional research and investment banking firm that focuses exclusively on companies that possess market changing, disruptive intellectual property.
