We are in the midst of a significant transformation:
#1 = Explosion of Innovation = Speed + Frequency + Convergence
#2 = Disruptive Innovation
AR / VR
Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Internet of Robotic Things
#3 = Platforms + Open Ecosystems = Digital Economy
And so much more - all at the same time.
So, what’s broken?
The real challenge lies within the complexities involved and the gaps between the Acceleration + Application + Adoption of Innovation.

Our "virtual" Problem Incubator is designed, structured and dedicated to helping executives and their organizations fix strategic business problems. We are tackling either new problems or existing problems in a new and unique way.
As Fixers - we prototype one strategic business problem at a time - with full operational responsibility and financial accountability.
#1 - Prove which strategic business problem(s) need to be fixed - that senior executives will invest in fixing - which can be fixed in part/in whole by the specific innovation that was submitted to the incubator.
#2 - Fix the problem - operationally.
#3 - Secure the return - financially.
The Buyers + Sellers + Investors of Innovation All Win In This Equation.
