Mintz Member Jonathan Cain to Present on In-Q-Tel Investments to San Diego Technology Companies

Jonathan T. Cain a Member in the Government Contracts Practice of Mintz, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, P.C., will be making a presentation regarding In-Q-Tel investing. The event takes place at Mintz San Diego office on Wednesday, June 19.

In-Q-Tel is the private technology acquisition company that serves the U.S. intelligence community.

The presentation is a follow-up session to a program jointly sponsored by Mintz and CommNexus last month that highlighted the opportunity for San Diego technology companies for investment by In-Q-Tel.  This second session will explore how such investments are structured, the risks and potential rewards of entering into such transactions and how to get the most out of the In-Q-Tel investment while protecting the value of the company’s technology. Over two-thirds of the companies entering into an In-Q-Tel investment have never sold or licensed technology to the federal government, and for many it is the most significant sale they will make before being acquired.

Mr. Cain, who has represented clients in transactions with In-Q-Tel for more than ten years,  has extensive experience in representing domestic and foreign companies, public-private partnerships, and quasi-government agencies in transactions and litigation involving federal government grants and contracts for the research, development, licensing, and sale of information systems hardware, software and services, communications equipment and services, life sciences products, defense hardware and materials, support services, humanitarian and development assistance, infrastructure project development, and the outsourcing of business process and information systems services. His experience includes procurements in the United States by foreign governments of defense and information systems, representation of foreign companies in federal procurements, and sales of products and services to state and local government agencies.
