Seeking innovative solutions for:

Vivek Ramakrishnan

Managing Director

I am an executive with 14 years of experience in licensing, intellectual property management, and medical device commercialization. As a Managing Director, Innovation Banking at Xinova, I am responsible for deals in the Healthcare space.

Prior to joining Xinova, I was the President of AxioSonic, an early stage startup that focused on building the first non-invasive treatment for chronic sinusitis. Before joining AxioSonic, I was Director at Intellectual Ventures, a $6 billion private equity fund, and focused on medical device investments. At Intellectual Ventures, I was the first employee of both India and Canada offices and was responsible for building the invention sourcing ecosystem for Intellectual Ventures in both countries.

In addition, I have also worked in technology commercialization at Johns Hopkins, National Institute of Health, and Beckman Research Institute at City of Hope. I have a doctoral degree in Biophysics and a management degree from Oregon Health and Sciences University.

I am excited to be back in Xinova to work with my former colleagues from Intellectual Ventures and look for new opportunities for innovation in the healthcare space.

I enjoy jazz music, art, and photography. I love playing my flamenco guitar and taking pictures in my spare time. I am a regular meditator and enjoy taking time for silent retreats every year.
