Equity Announces Intellectual Property Refinery
DENVER, Colo., May 20, 2002 - Thought Equity Management
Inc., a leader in the collection and distribution of intellectual
property, today announced plans for its state-of-the-art
Intellectual Property (IP) Refinery.
The purpose of the IP Refinery is to sort, profile, refine
and package intellectual property from a variety of sources
including professional service, high growth and insolvent
To help build this IP Refinery, Thought Equity has selected
Ridge Creative, a full-service consulting and advertising
agency located in Laramie, Wyoming. Ridge Creative was
selected based on their experience working with a range
of customers from large enterprise to small business,
and their ability to produce nationally competitive results.
"We are excited to be part of Thought Equity's vision,"
said David Coleman, president of Ridge Creative. "For
the past 8 years, Ridge Creative has prided itself on
its commitment to excellence and high tech work, and this
development marks a huge win for us."
Thought Equity first chose Laramie as the desired location
for the IP Refinery, and then selected Ridge based on
their qualifications. Ridge Creative will consult on,
and help build Thought Equity's stock creative inventory,
which is supplied to various software companies and business
service providers worldwide.
"Ridge Creative has a progressive approach to problem
solving and consulting, and has composed a diverse team
of talent that fits in well with Thought Equity's mission,"
stated Kevin Schaff, CEO of Thought Equity.
"We could have put the IP Refinery anywhere. We chose
Laramie, Wyoming because of its cost-effectiveness, its
proximity to our headquarters in Denver, and the University
which provides us access to a highly educated workforce,"
continued Schaff. "Both the state and the University have
demonstrated tremendous support of new business."
This IP Refinery will be the first of its kind in the
intellectual property field, and plans on being fully
operational in early June.
