How Can a Company Become a Certified Partner?

Gold Partner

This is for consultancy companies with a specific number of accredited people and a clear plan for their region; these partners are supported with the world’s largest innovation management library of templates, sales material, marketing material, cases, keynotes, and more. Gold Partners are listed on our client home page and get extensive pre-sales support. We now have several Gold Partners, and one of them just signed up 20 companies simultaneously by doing an innovation management assessment with InnoSurvey®.

Educational Partner

Educational institutions can add more value to their offering by extending their curriculum of micro-credentials, electives, and executive education with market-leading innovation management online content and tools. Within the organization, they can instill our world-leading ideation platform into the academic community, across research projects, collaborations with businesses, and the student body. We have several very strong Educational Partners serving communities around the world. Through the Educational Partnership model with Innovation 360 Group, educational institutions can collaborate with Innovation 360 on innovation management programs for partners, sponsors, students, and the business community. Educational Partners gain access to our suite of analytical tools, workshopping apps, ideation platform, and the largest innovation management database in the world.

We are particularly proud of our partnership with Humber College Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning, one of our newest Educational Partners. COVID-19 has tested their collective ability to muster a timely response to new realities; the college’s “can-do attitude” illustrates their culture of innovation and demonstrates how it can boost the organization’s capacity to pivot in times of crisis.

“We don’t necessarily brag about it – we just get things done. And that’s a very Canadian attitude,” says Dr. Ginger Grant, Humber’s Acting Dean of Applied Research and Innovation. Dr. Grant continues, “My grandfather, who built cabinets, always said, ‘You measure seven times and cut once.’ Innovation 360 enhances our ability to measure before we cut.” Read more here.

Under Prof Ginger´s great leadership and backed by Innovation 360´s advisory services, Humber College has, amongst other great achievements, managed to climb from #30 to #2 in the national ranking within applied innovation and research.

Corporate Partner

This is an option for larger organizations with internal consultants. We have corporate partners in all continents, and this is a great way for them to get access to otherwise inaccessible tools, data, and methods that complement the services offered by Innovation 360, Educational Partners, and Gold Partners. This program is for organizations that aim at having a large number of internal certified innovation consultants serving them across the board.
