Our Innovator and LaunchPad programs focus on three core components:

A Founder Focus

Innovator and LaunchPad bring together small groups of founders to collaborate and help each other discover the value of their innovative idea.

It’s About Conversations

Active, dynamic conversations about business value, for people who are not ‘business people’. These conversations promote debates, laughter, and intense discussion – and push founders to consider the possibilities for their ideas.

Action Oriented & Outcome Driven

This is not a training class! This is a program where decisions get made and the business value is defined. Every session ends with actions taken and an element of the business value decision made.
