Our Team of Innovators

A lawyer, a project manager and a monkey walk into a bar…

Here at the Innovation Advantage, we like to spend time getting to know people.

In fact, if we had our way, right now we’d be sitting with you in a coffee shop, having a great conversation and getting to know each other better.

But in today’s world, we realize that if we want to get to know you, first we’re going to need to tell you a little bit about us.

So, with imaginary coffee mug in hand, here it goes.
