In February 2018 our team flew out to a beach town in Florida for our strategic retreat.
We invited a filmmaker friend to join us, and he produced the video you just saw. No one has quite been able to capture our team's style and culture quite so well.
Thank you for this wonderful gift, sir : )
Today, we are a team of innovation facilitators and trainers working with scientists, business leaders, and other inspiring innovators on some of the most complex and pressing challenges the world faces.
Here is a short list of challenges we've worked on:
We didn't always do this kind of work. We came from all walks of life.
Some of us were academics, entrepreneurs, creativity consultants, programmers, even accountants ; ) We were all misfits to start with, always trying to change things. Now changing things is our job... and we love what we do!
Accelerating Scientific Innovation
Knowinnovation is the oldest company in our family and focuses on working with the scientific community. Our work in this domain began in the UK working with the EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Council), and spread to the National Science Foundation in the US, NASA, various other research ministries and agencies, as well as various universities around the world.
The focus of Knowinnovation is to accelerate scientific innovation. We do this by bringing creativity principles into collaborative science events and communities. We've built consortia and online networks, produced conferences and other lives events, and even produced the occasional virtual reality webinar. Our work almost always includes an interdisciplinary group of scientists and aims at solving a complex scientific challenge, or sometimes an educational or organizational challenge.Visit Knowinnovation.com
Including People Who Are Usually Excluded From The Process of Innovation
Inclusive Innovation was pioneered by Maggie Dugan who wanted to take our creativity expertise and apply it to help solve problems in the developing world. If we could help scientists solve unbelievably difficult challenges, surely we could contribute to the progress being made on sustainable development.
Inclusive Innovation has worked with the United Nations, and various development banks and NGO's across the developing world. We've worked on microlending projects, small holder farmer initiatives, sustainable transport, leadership development in science across Africa and Southeast Asia, and much more; always in the spirit of inclusivity, and always with our eyes set on making a meaningful and sustainable impact.
Currently, we're working directly on the SDG's: HackTheSDGs.orgVisit InclusiveInnovation.org
Finding, Inspiring, and Supporting the World's Innovators
Innovation Bound was founded by Costa Michailidis and Stavros Michailidis, and focuses on working with business leaders and top talent teams at enterprises and businesses across a broad range of industries.
We've built innovation tournaments inside of large tech companies, helped multinational organizations develop their own language of innovation to break through bureaucratic hangups, immersed top talent groups in creativity testing simulations, and much more. Our goal is to build the innovation capability of individuals and enterprises, so that organizations can withstand the tsunami of disruption that's become typical in markets today, and further still, to blaze the trails and set the trends that change the world.Visit InnovationBound.com
