What is different about The Innovators Networks?

All of our guides/coaches/mentors have and are actively working as innovation leaders

One example is our co-founder, Phil McKinney. Phil retired in 2011 as the CTO for Hewlett-Packard where he was the founder of its Innovation Program Office (IPO). The IPO has been written about in many leading publications and is used as case studies at Stanford and Harvard Business Schools. Phil is the current President and CEO of CableLabs, the R&D and innovation lab for the global cable industry staffed with +200 world-class technologists, innovators, and research scientists. The innovations, products, and services he has been directly involved with over his innovation career are used by more than 500 million consumers and businesses each and every day.

The Innovators Network brings REAL experiences, not professional consultants whose “experiences” are what they learned from consulting engagements or books.
