Join Our Business Networking Group
Every member of Innovators Alliance has achieved significant growth in their business and is looking to unleash its potential further. Business-to-business networking gives our members the connections and feedback they need to achieve success.
Why Join Innovators Alliance?
Innovators Alliance members help one another identify new advancements and seize opportunities to unleash growth.Monthly Local Chapter Meetings
We meet monthly for a confidential discussion of our business challenges. We discuss ideas and new ways to resolve common problems. Over the three hour meetings, we share ways we practice innovation in our companies – whether it be new product developments or simply new practices that have impacted the bottom line.
The power of what we do lies in the openness each member brings to the table. We share the ‘dirty little secrets’ of building a business. We learn from one another’s successes – and sometimes from the failures.
Engaging in open, free, and honest discussion at the highest level of corporate decision-making, our members enjoy unique benefits that can be difficult to find outside of our organization.
Capitalize on the power of your innovative peers.
Members of Innovators Alliance build strong trust relationships with their peers.
As a CEO or business owner, you are faced with unique challenges and decisions every day. Enjoy the freedom to openly discuss your organization’s successes and hurdles with a group of CEOs, Presidents, and COOs who understand what it’s like to be at the top. Gain access to your peers’ innovative practices, experience, and knowledge.
You will have the opportunity to seek – in confidence – advice and ideas to resolve the challenges you are facing. Each Alliance member has hands-on experience in high-performing international companies.
World Class System of Innovation
On average, our members increase revenues by 119%. How?
Implementing change takes careful consideration and, ultimately, time.
Designed by a globally renowned leader in innovation, our proprietary Innovation Journey™ helps members:
- Organize innovation into achievable milestones
- Implement change as efficiently and easily as possible
- Stay on track with the encouragement and support of peers
- Access the resources and sponsor services they need to keep moving forward
Members are required to do an Innovation Journey™ presentation to their peers at least once each year during a chapter meeting.
First, we help members achieve innovation through a peer mentoring process. Then we ask them to share ways that they practice innovation in their company.Accountability for Innovation
In this way, we hold members accountable to be looking for ways to innovate. And we enjoy the opportunity to learn from one another!
Support and Expertise of Our Sponsors
Our sponsors have proven to be a valuable resource for our members. Their expertise and core competencies provide our members with answers, resources, and tools that growing companies require.
Whether it’s about finance, legal, HR, import, export, sales, or marketing, our sponsors provide guest speakers at our Chapter meetings that can address current business concerns and help solve problems.
Business Growth and Profits
We take the innovations that we discuss at the networking meetings and apply them in our individual businesses.
Sometimes what a company does in one business sector is a significant shift – a true innovation – when applied in another sector. For most of us, when we apply these ideas and innovations, we realize exceptional profits and achieve new growth.
Special Business Networking Events
We host large events several times per year, including the Evening with Innovators and Fresh Thinking Shared.
These popular special events offer excellent networking opportunities, high entertainment value, and expert keynote speakers.
Previously we have featured speakers like Jeremy Gutsche, Jeff Rubin, Joseph Doria, and Frank McKenna.
