By: PicPocket, Inc.
“We are pleased to be working with Fortkort & Houston, a firm with a successful track record of developing intellectual property portfolios for Austin’s high-tech community,” said Wolfram Gauglitz, Founder and Chairman of PicPocket. “Our partnership will allow PicPocket to aggressively develop the IP portfolio it needs to protect the company’s innovative technologies and carve out new markets.”
John Fortkort, founding partner of Fortkort & Houston, added: “PicPocket has developed a truly innovative mobile technology platform for the exchange of event-related images, one that revolutionizes how photos are shared among event participants. The full import of this technology, and the new technological and business paradigms it enables, are only just now being appreciated. We are excited to be working with the company to secure, shape and develop its intellectual property portfolio at this early stage.”
Mr. Gauglitz noted that the relationship has already resulted in the filing of a key patent application for an emerging enterprise opportunity – and that several provisional filings are underway.
PicPocket is an Internet startup based in Austin, TX which enables friends and family to aggregate and curate content from any live event, from every angle and every perspective, finally making good on the promise of eliminating the pain, frustration and clumsiness of modern day photo-sharing. Use cases include weddings, family reunions, youth sports, concerts – any social setting where pictures are taken.
PicPocket has also demonstrated applicability in Enterprise and Government markets and is exploring technology partnerships to integrate its platform into existing workflows. The company is currently in beta with a target launch of Q4 2014.
