Intellectual Ventures Laboratory’s mission is to conduct advanced research on some of IV’s most promising inventions. We take game-changing ideas and bring them to life to demonstrate their potential for commercial or humanitarian use. Unlike traditional university or corporate research facilities, IV Lab specializes in proof-of-concept work and has the flexibility to take on challenges that are too risky for others to pursue.
Intellectual Ventures Laboratory believes in the power of independent thinking and unconventional approaches to problems. At the core of our success is a team of more than 130 employees, including over 30 PhDs, united by a sense of scientific fearlessness. IV Lab’s unique environment has attracted veteran technologists and scientists from leading companies and renowned academic, government and private laboratories.
