Our people impact invention through groundbreaking research and partnerships, from investigating applications for our most ambitious inventions, to spinning out new companies that create and commercialize transformative technologies. That’s the essence of Impact Invention—our belief that we can change the world through the power of invention—and we’re looking for people who share our passion for world-changing ideas.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

IV was founded on the certainty that ideas have value. It is with that same certainty we acknowledge that not all ideas are equally valued. Our ability to champion impactful invention demands a diverse array of talent supported within an environment where all team members are included and empowered to do their best work. As an organization we learn from our past, address current issues, and remove lingering systems that create, maintain, or promote inequities throughout the workplace. We are committed to building a more diverse and inclusive environment by adopting and advancing equitable practices and processes. Learn more.
