Chief Technical Officer for Hire.

Hiring a full time CTO is a commitment for any company — especially if that CTO happens to be a Ph.D. scientist with broad business development & deal making experience, combined with over 20 years of Intellectual Asset Management. This kind of commitment led to the creation of Lyco Works to take work off of your desk, and run projects for you.

Lyco Works was formed after witnessing a myriad of ideas and inventions halt commercialization due to stressed systems, intellectual property mishaps, and overworked innovation teams. We offer the flexibility of a contractor consultant, the dedication of an employee, and a fresh perspective on your situation.

Lyco Works Incorporated founder, Dr. Jason Lye offers a uniquely qualified business perspective on your IP strategy, providing a line of sight from IP to long-term revenue growth. Dr. Lye is a Harvard Law School trained negotiator, a seasoned dealmaker, an inventor, and a scientist. He is a Ph.D. dye and polymer chemist (NCSU), who has also worked in textile, digital imaging, printing, and chemical industries. Additionally he has over 15 years of IP-centric deal-making with Kimberly-Clark, Newell Rubbermaid, and independently. Dr. Lye’s last industrial position was Director of in-Licensing for Newell Brands with global accountability. In this position he lead multiple $100 million Open Innovation projects for various B2B and Consumer Product business units and his advice was relied upon by Newell’s venture investment function.
