There is a better way. Together we’ll find it.
Defining innovation is harder than it seems. While most people can distinguish a genuine breakthrough from a trivial incremental improvement, knowing what truly changes the game – and perhaps more importantly, how to serially deliver on innovation – is a major challenge for many organizations.
We know that curiosity is at the heart of innovation.
It’s about examining what others have left unexamined. It’s challenging “the way we’ve always done it,” noticing trends that others are missing, and uncovering hidden customer desires.
Experienced entrepreneurs lead NEXT. We know how to generate ideas, turn those ideas into winning offerings, and craft successful business initiatives.
As a client of NEXT Consulting, we will help you find new ideas that are compelling to your customers, create competitive advantage, and set you on a path to serial innovation.
Let’s create what’s NEXT.
Our Areas of Practice
Ideation and Creation
We’ve applied our business experience to the creation of a venture studio and a methodology for turning ideas into products and products into companies. We offer tools and techniques we’ve created for accelerating the process and generating new ideas through design thinking.
Coaching and Mentoring
We offer multiple decades of experience at all stages of business development across every domain of business, including human resources, design and branding, leadership and management, funding and financing, and business operations and planning.
Corporations and Universities
We’ve developed relationships over many years with the leaders
and change agents inside some of America’s largest and most influential institutions, including the innovation and startup functions of some of our largest research universities, all of which could help distance yourself from the competition through innovation.
Budgets and Resources
We’ve helped our customers secure hundreds of millions of dollars to fuel innovative products and companies and built our own innovative hybrid impact fund. We understand how every project begins with securing the resources, either internally or externally, and we know what to do.
Political and Public Policy
We’re active in our government, leading (and in some cases, creating) organizations to educate policymakers in our government and connect them with the innovation ecosystem. From grants to shared research to economic development, we’ve got the connections that can accelerate your innovation success.
