Arvin Patel will be joining Intellectual Ventures as Chief Operations Officer.

On July 9, Intellectual Ventures (IV) announced Arvin Patel as the company's Chief Operating Officer for its Invention Investment Fund (IIF). Patel will lead commercialization strategy and execution, business development, and partnerships across the fund's vast patent portfolio.

At TiVo, he oversaw the annual $400 million IP business, including the company's industry-leading portfolios of approximately 6,000 issued and pending patents worldwide. Within the IP business, Patel led TiVo's global organization of IP professionals tasked with ongoing portfolio development and management, licensing, strategic patent acquisition, policy, and the company's long-term innovation strategy.  

"Arvin is a seasoned and respected thought leader with decades of experience in technology, intellectual property, and public policy," said Nathan Myhrvold, Founder and CEO of Intellectual Ventures. "His deep IP expertise strengthens our mission to support a robust ecosystem where impactful invention can thrive."  

At TiVo, Patel forged collaborative relationships with leading universities and Silicon Valley companies. He will continue to evolve and advance innovative IP licensing collaboration models at IV.  

"I'm thrilled to have Arvin join the team," said Mathen Ganesan, IIF Executive Vice President. "His proven track record in IP commercialization and patent litigation strategies will be a huge benefit as we look to take our commercial activity to the next level, building on the licensing successes of the last three years. Arvin is a true advocate of a nimble, multidisciplinary, and collaborative team approach that complements our culture here at IV."  

"Intellectual Ventures is one of the most forward-thinking innovation companies in the world. I'm honored to join this exceptional team," said Arvin Patel. "I hope to continue to build on the mission of impact invention at IV and bring real change not only to the technology industry but in the way that innovation is created and distributed around the world."
