Dan Buri, CEO & President
Dan is the CEO of Vitek with a vision of making the patent marketplace more accessible and transparent. Prior to forming Vitek, he was an owner and director in a patent transaction advisory with an international presence. He spent over ten years helping technology companies manage, analyze, value, develop, acquire and divest patents. He has advised some of the world’s largest technology companies on a wide variety of patent matters, including many high-profile patent engagements and transaction totals in the nine-figures. He believes IP is an under-utilized and under-valued asset class.
Mark Jones, CTO
Mark is the CTO of Vitek and is excited to bring new technologies to the patent-IP market. Prior to forming Vitek, he founded and led three companies that won awards for innovation in software and hardware. He is a serial innovator, with over 120 patents as named inventor. Mark’s passion is software algorithms and computing architecture – he keeps returning to graphics and video compression, most recently running the Video Algorithms team at Apple. He, like many others, believes that field-programmable hardware is the answer, but is still trying to find the right question.
