Why Sell to IV?

Experience Is Our Differentiator

Deciding to sell your inventions can be a difficult decision, and you want a buyer that will treat you and your assets with respect. At Intellectual Ventures, we believe ideas are valuable and, as one of the largest filers of original U.S. patents, we know what inventors go through to develop a patentable idea.

Unique Perspective

With the largest portfolio of active patent assets in the world, we have expert knowledge of the market and will give you quick and insightful feedback on your assets.

Predictable & Direct

On average, IV closes a significant patent purchase transaction every business day. As a result, we’ve developed proprietary processes and employ dedicated, experienced professionals.

Fully-Funded Investment Plan

With $6 billion in committed capital, we fund out of our capital on hand and typically close quickly once our due diligence process is completed successfully.
