Innovation Flow:

Innovation Flow is our proprietary approach for growing Ideas into Innovations. It is based on the thatva (principle) of balancing creative freedom and execution discipline.

Innovation Flow provides a structured framework, systematic process, creativity tools and problem solving techiques to grow ideas into innovation. This methodology has been used at Corporates like ITC, BEL, CTS, Dow Chemicals, Honeywell etc and taught at premier academic institutions like IISc, IIT Madras, IIT Bombay, IIT Gandhinagar, Symbiosis etc.  We have recently conducted Innovation Flow sessions for entrepreneurs in San Jose, California and for Intellectual Property professionals in Melbourne.
