Rob Dhat

VP of Innovation Partnerships

I’ve been around problem-solving and innovating most of my life. As a young kid I would break my toys and the family’s electronics only to learn how they worked by putting them back together. This intellectual curiosity and passion for problem-solving ultimately paved the way for me to a degree in electrical engineering.

My involvement in innovation only increased when I attained my first job where my primary responsibility was to work with other engineers to solve computer memory system and performance problems facing the industry. As my early career progressed and I transitioned into customer-facing roles, I realized how much more enjoyment I attained from working directly with customers to solve their problems.

This recognition drove me to explore problem-solving from a business lens taking on roles in product management and marketing. Ultimately, the switch to the ‘business’ side of the corporate world led me back to school for an MBA and new roles involving commercializing R&D, monetizing technology, and helping companies grow their businesses.

Helping people find solutions to their problems is a passion of mine – Xinova is a great place to continue exploring this passion.
