IOI Partners was formed in 2015 as a result of a combination of two leading business advisory firms, Inside Out Innovations and SAGIAN Ventures. Inside Out Innovations focused on helping organizations realize maximum value from innovation efforts. SAGIAN Ventures focus was primarily on maximizing value from existing product lines and operations. The combined entity gives clients of all sizes the opportunity to partner with a single organization when seeking to improve enterprise value, regardless of where the source of value originates.
The name IOI comes from Inside Out Innovations and is rooted in our belief that although innovation efforts are typically pursued for purposes of creating value within the company, innovation by definition must create value outside the company. When evaluating alternatives to achieve the internal value proposition for an innovation it is important to “step outside” the company to best understand how your innovation will be valued by customers and stakeholders. Understanding how your innovation will be valued externally provides insight that will ensure you select the optimal path to success.
