In 2009, we began researching innovation, innovation management and growth structures that organizations use to increase enterprise value. We launched a 2-year project to gain a deeper understanding of how innovation leaders structured their innovation efforts, what processes they used and the mechanisms that worked in their organizations.
Through 2014 we interviewed hundreds of innovation leaders. From these interviews we uncovered a number of shared practices senior executives, investors, directors and managers of innovation, growth programs and continuous improvement efforts use. We identified commonly used innovation definitions, outcomes and metrics, funding mechanisms, processes and cultural change programs. We wrote dozens of essays and published several of our findings in a series of articles.
In 2016, we merged our efforts with an already existing group of Chief Innovation Officers. Our founding customers included the most recognized names in Colorado. Our collaboration become a private, by invite only, no competitors allowed group that organized around the findings we uncovered in our research.
We've helped our members produce several significant accomplishments while working with their innovation teams. Examples include helping one member go public and another execute an acquisition strategy. We worked with a new multi-billion dollar business to enable the creation of a new innovation team. We helped launch a new statewide initiative that ultimately created a new collaboration involving every municipality in the state. These efforts allowed our members to increase their enterprise value by grow revenue and expanding market share.
Our current offers focus on helping organizations operate at the breakthrough end of the innovation spectrum. They are helping to create the Industries of the Future including blockchain, IoT, Smart Cities, cannabis, crypto-currency, cyber-security, AgTech and many others. It is our mission to use our time, energy and money helping them innovate in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
The pace and scale of innovation is rapid and global so we work closely with each of our members to be that first call when they need a resource to help them produce fresh, new impactful innovations that shape the future.
