Indian Researchers embrace Intellectual Ventures

Economic Times carried article on student innovator Mayank Swarup of Manipal Institute of Technology. His patent was filed by Intellectual Ventures (IV). As per this report IV had tie-up with 8 universities including most IITs. What is the reach of IV and how much cash they disbursed to Indian researchers till date? IIT Kanpur has put in public domain the patents (11) filed through IV, all filed in the year 2010-2011.Is it reasonable to assume IV supported about 100 Indian patents and paid a million dollars to researchers/ institutes till now?
