Benefits Review:

1. Understanding and Using innovation best practices and resources for your ongoing business growth, competitive differentiation and unique client/community engagement strategies -

  • "Innovation" represents the only full set of business tools, processes, and mindsets created for business owners and leaders, and their employees, to manage and grow their business in a rapidly changing business and cultural environment. The Institute provides a continuously curated Innovation Library and Advisory Board of global, cross-industry innovation experts for members to build their innovation capital and innovation capabilities.

  • Innovation resources compiled for Institute members will attract HNW individuals, business owners/entrepreneurs, family offices, corporate CEOs/CFOs, educational institutions, local community leaders and centers of influence.

  • Innovation resources that help you carve out distinctive differentiation and branding for you and your firm.

  • Innovation resources that help you build unique community engagement strategies and positioning as a key social and business leader supporting the growth of your community.

2. Your outsourced innovation R&D department

Most advisor firms do not have the staffing, budgets, time or expertise to develop internal innovation teams or labs, and if they do, they know that innovation needs to be constantly fed with a wide cross-industry array of ideas and approaches. The Institute will help "Founding Innovator" members develop and launch innovation efforts and community innovation outreach/marketing programs that they may not have been able to do alone. The Institute will do this by adding the necessary leverage - the time, resources and spark needed -  for "Founding Innovator" members to ensure adding and deepening innovative approaches to their ongoing leadership, competitive differentiation, staff preparation for changing business conditions, and tactical client engagement programs. 

3.  A collaborative innovation network and community –

The Institute will provide an immediate cross-industry innovation network saving members the time and effort in building and nurturing their own. All research proves that to be more innovative, you need to challenge your thinking by having access to diverse ideas by expanding your networks outside your industry. Our website community provides a secure base from which to find, engage and experiment with like-minded, growth-oriented advisors, top business innovators, and new strategic partners, including unique innovation service providers.
