Dan McManus has been working for INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY EXCHANGE Ltd. since the joint venture with Sparkup Inc in July 2015. As Software Developer for INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY EXCHANGE, Dan is responsible for designing and building central elements for highly automated IP transactions. He brings a wide range of experience: After graduating from McGill with a Bachelors in Software Engineering, Dan worked for the CSB business unit of CGI where his work centered around building software systems used by Bell Canada to perform activation and provisioning on Canada's largest high speed internet and digital TV network. He left CGI in July 2013 to join Sparkup Inc., a Montreal based startup, as a Software Developer to help build the first fully transactional online IP marketplace. At Sparkup, his work focused mainly on the design and implementation of the transaction engine used by the platform for many different types of IP assignment. Using what he has learnt about IP licensing and assignments, Dan now looks forward to designing and building the world's first fully automated and user-friendly platform for IP transactions.
