Innovative IP Accelerator Convenes Brain Trust at State-of-the-Art Silicon Alley

Facility to Rescue Underleveraged Assets from the IP Graveyard


NEW YORK—August 23, 2011— Ingk Labs has announced the opening of its new development center on Fifth Avenue at the heart of New York City’s Silicon Alley. The new office will serve as a think-tank and ideation collective where an elite team of the most gifted technology and business minds in the industry will employ a unique design, development and deployment model to rescue underleveraged digital assets from the IP graveyard. The new space will house company executives and dedicated fast-track startup teams, as well as advisors, entrepreneurs-in-residence, business development, legal and administrative personnel.

Ingk Labs has evolved in recent years from a relatively small team of startup consultants and software engineers, to a full-fledged IP accelerator dedicated to bringing diverse, rescued intellectual property back from the brink of oblivion and transforming it into game-changing portfolio ventures focused on the social graph.

“For more than a decade, Ingk Labs has been deeply committed to the New York technology and venture communities. This is a tremendous place to build a team and meet the sophisticated demands of our customers and investors,” said Craig Alberino, CEO and founding partner at Ingk Labs.

The modern, communal Ingk Labs space is designed to provide a collaborative environment where staff can fully focus their creative and technical expertise in support of the company’s intensive, ongoing IP acceleration model that produces self-sustaining companies every 90 days. Ingk Labs portfolio ventures are hand-selected and curated to provide high-growth industries and Fortune 500 companies with acquisition and investment opportunities that will solve their social media challenges, and unlock the potential of the social Web in new, product-centric ways.

Alberino continued, “Our new offices are a unique match for the needs of our company, allowing us to accommodate continued growth, while providing our staff with a state-of-the-art, collaborative work environment. Candidates for open positions are recognizing that our new facilities and the dynamic culture at Ingk Labs can fuel their imaginations, and propel their careers forward in ways never thought possible.”

“Our development center brings together a brain-trust comprised of many of the finest technology and business minds in New York City under one roof, as we build on a successful legacy of taking rescued intellectual property from concept to company,” added Damion Hänkejh, CTO and founding partner of Ingk Labs. “We have hand-selected our first cycle of IP concepts, and are briskly moving toward coalescing the first crop of portfolio ventures  that will bring a vigorous return to our investors. This is, indeed, a very exciting time at Ingk Labs.”
