Bruce Hollibaugh's Profile

Bruce Hollibaugh is the CEO and founder of Strategic IP Initiatives, Inc (SIPI), a leading licensing/litigation support, strategic prosecution, and reverse engineering firm. Mr Hollibaugh says, “Over the last 20-plus years, I have been very fortunate to work with some of our industry's top IP thought leaders from companies such as AMD, Intel, Qualcomm, Broadcom, and Cisco.”

Mr Hollibaugh's responsibilities as an executive at prior IP firms included licensing/litigation strategy, contracts, and Subject Matter Expert (SME) recruiting. Mr Hollibaugh was also responsible for overseeing the external testing labs. This experience exposed the inherent data security risks and the inability to control workflow at these labs, leading to the realization that building a dedicated lab for the SIPI SME team was a must. The Silicon Valley facility is a state-of-the-art resource for the SIPI SME team. 

Mr Hollibaugh says, “Creating this lab was driven by our clients. Their desire to push the boundaries of what is possible to observe and discover embedded technologies was the driving factor. With the complexities of testing products like automotive systems, RF, and large-scale networking systems, we realized there was no other way to get the data our clients needed.  Building our lab enabled us to use the latest technologies to create a facility with remote vision and control systems not imaginable a few years ago. The foundation of our business model is to find the best SMEs on the planet. Now, our SMEs can fully observe and control every step of the research process, regardless of location. I was surprised to see how much more data and system knowledge can come from this approach."

Mr Hollibaugh has spoken at several of the leading intellectual property conferences on the issues of patent mining, reverse engineering, and patent licensing. Mr Hollibaugh is also a proud father, licensed pilot, musician, and avid motorcyclist.
