Innovation Acceleration Group
What We Do
We accelerate the delivery to market of customer-validated innovations, focused on leveraging new technologies and establishing disruptive business models. Through our guided experiential learning process, your teams work on real current problems and opportunities — not case studies or hypothetical examples — and deliver tangible results in as little as two months. We have helped teams launch new products, services and business models in one third the time at one tenth the cost of traditional methods. Our programs' immersive experience turns your employees into innovators, armed with a repeatable and scalable process they can use again and again.
How We Do It
Based on years of entrepreneurial experience combined with our repeatable, scalable methodologies, Innovation Acceleration Group Instructors guide teams of entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs through 7-week to 6-month long evidence-based customer discovery processes. Over the course of our programs, teams get one-on-one coaching, participate in group collaboration, and receive feedback from their peers and mentors. At the end, each team will have a validated go/no-go decision and lean go-to-market plan, saving months (if not years) of time and financial investment.
We possess unmatched expertise and results, having taken hundreds of startups and innovation teams through accelerators that have more than tripled technology and service funding rates over traditional programs. Additionally, IAG has helped launch new product, technology, service and e-commerce portfolios for large companies. Our methods have been used by the US National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, and Department of Energy. We also have experience working in a multitude of industries, including CPG, health-care, biotech, pharma, hardware, software and social ventures.
