We believe ideas are valuable. At Intellectual Ventures, we invest both expertise and capital in the development of inventions. We collaborate with leading inventors and partner with pioneering companies. By providing access to our portfolio of patents, we help our customers innovate and reduce their risk by bridging the gap between the invention rights they currently have and the invention rights they need.
As the global leader in the business of invention and owner of one of the world’s largest and fastest-growing patent portfolios, we are creating an active market for invention that connects buyers, sellers, and inventors.
"An industry dedicated to financing inventors and monetizing their creations could transform the world."
–Nathan Myhrvold, CEO IV
