Through Emerging Technology Councils and custom Innovation Discovery Programs, we help business leaders stay one step ahead of change. 


Keeping up with constantly changing technology is the key to surviving and thriving in today’s economy. 

We build Emerging Technology Councils in partnership with media and executive leadership membership organizations, and craft custom Innovation Discovery Programs for corporate clients. Business leaders tasked with understanding and deploying new technologies—CEOs, CIOs, CMOs, Chief Data Officers—Learn about new areas of technology, Discover great startups gaining traction in those areas, and Connect with their peers facing the same challenges.
