José, the founder of José Ventura Studios, is an inventor, licensor and mentor, with a background in interactive art. He is based in Cape Town.
He combines his skillset of ideation and prototyping to earn royalties on his inventions for as he says “it takes many ideas to find the good ones, and so I prefer a lean approach to getting ideas to market by securing licensing agreements with open innovation companies …
This approach to getting an invention to market just makes more sense to me.” Working with one of the leading agents in New York, José has licensed out his IP to open Innovation companies in return for royalties, so he has direct and active experience in licensing to share.
As Patineur, José has worked for many well-known international artists in this specialised art form and besides, has restored bronzes by the likes of Anton Van Wouw and Eduardo Villa on behalf of Stephen Weltz & Co and Strauss and Co.
José was appointed an Executive Member for the Institute of Inventors and Innovators in September 2020, is the host of the III Inventors Club and also serves as a panelist for Pitch it to the Panel™.
