Research and Development
Operations & Manufacturing

Marketing and Sales
Capital Equipment Development
We have done this as both individual contributors or in senior leadership positions inside and outside of the corporate world.
Our people come from a number of areas, mostly from Intel and Tektronix, as well as a couple boutique consultancies and a couple from Small and Medium Sized companies.
We see ourselves as the Consumer Reports of innovation. If there is a methodology, framework, or tool that doesn't perform to standard every time, we'll tell you so. We don't want our clients or our students to be misled, ripped off or end up wasting time and money on a tool that is not effective. We come from the corporate world where the standards of performance are extremely demanding and the methods that we use to innovate MUST meet those standards of performance excellence and have value to the user.
We only teach what we KNOW works, and that does so repeatably and reliably, so that you know as a consumer of our work product that you can trust that you are getting the very best that can be delivered.
