About Us

We are committed to providing you with the best innovation services possible.  The company was originally founded as VentureForward, LLC in 2001 and is now doing business as Targeted Innovation Services,  LLC.  While providing state-of-the-art information and ideation services, we focus on discovering your hidden innovation potential.  We then teach your team to implement that potential to maximize the payout of your efforts and increase the probability of market success.


At Targeted Innovation Services we have the skill set and expertise of a handful of firms like Deloitte & Touche and McKinsey, but we’re smaller and more flexible.  That means we're more affordable and better able to immerse ourselves in your unique needs, goals and culture.  You get better results because of our track record of knowing what works and what doesn’t, your competitive environment, your intellectual property strategy, and what you need to do to prosper.
