Army of Innovators

The world is full of great inventors, and we count ourselves lucky to work with many of them.

Our global network of more than 4,000 inventors drawn from more than 400 government labs, research institutions, corporations, and universities helps us invent in the technology areas that matter most to our customers. Our 120 senior inventors are at the top of their field—whether that’s neurosurgery, nuclear physics, engineering, or computer science—and their collective brainpower fuels some of IV’s biggest ideas for invention. Our handpicked team of in-house inventors tackle difficult ideas every day while conducting extensive research and determining product feasibility and market viability.
We purchase patents from individual inventors, start-ups, large corporations, research institutions, and everything in between. By acquiring these inventions, we provide capital to inventors and give their ideas a better chance of getting into the marketplace.
