We build innovation labs.

Cultural alignment, capacity-building, and customer experience design for corporations, founders, and purpose-driven leaders like you.

Innovation is the continuous adoption of new ideas.

Innovation is not management. Innovation is exploration. Management is execution. Management and innovation have different cultures, led by different leaders, and must co-exist in harmony.

Build a Compounding Competitive Advantage by developing internal teams of entrepreneurs exclusively dedicated to the full-time exploration of ideas, and, ultimately, validating new business models.

Build a Due Diligence Pipeline by developing Innovation Portfolios of many small, inexpensive bets to unlock strategic mergers and acquisitions while creating economic opportunity for the local community.

The Book on Innovation

We can not pick the winners (winning ideas). The winners must be discovered through the continuous exploration of 100s to 1000s of potential innovation opportunities. Learn how to get started.

New Jersey Innovation Evergreen Fund

infrastructure, mentorship, training, access to markets, opportunities

$500M venture fund

“One of the best features of this program is that it is a two-pronged approach to supporting New Jersey startups. The dollars we invest would enable the businesses to grow, while the guidance provided by the corporations would ensure startups have the institutional support they need to thrive. This is how you successfully build an innovation ecosystem.”

-Tim Sullivan, CEO of the New Jersey Economic Development Authority


Evidence-Based Social Enterprise Ecosystem Methodology

— Peter Drucker
