About InnovatorsBox

I want to learn more about InnovatorsBox…
What exactly is InnovatorsBox?

We do a lot of things, but at our core we are a creative education firm empowering leaders and companies to live more creatively. That’s why all our offerings and products are geared to build and unlock your creative mindset.

How is InnovatorsBox different from design thinking or other creativity programs?

It’s different in both approach and focus. While design thinking is great for solving a known challenge, it does not necessarily help you learn how to think more creatively. Improv, another common approach to creativity, is great for shifting your energy, but it does not help you understand how to embed creativity into your routine. We saw that need and we wanted to find a solution.

 

That’s why all our offerings focus on how to build a creative mindset, how to sustain creative thinking, and how to make creativity a lifestyle and habit. Today 87% of professionals around the world are not satisfied at work. That’s a huge number of people who are feeling stuck and dissatisfied. We want to change that through creativity. Wouldn’t you want to live in a world where everyone was fulfilling their potential?

How does InnovatorsBox ensure it delivers the best possible quality to customers?

We pour our hearts into each and every program. We take your feedback seriously and we are always looking for new ways to make your experience empowering and exciting. We understand creativity is often seen as something non-tangible and difficult to evaluate, so we are here to make sure we deliver on your goals.

How is the InnovatorsBox approach to creativity different from other programs?

It is different because our interactive engagements and products are focused on building a creative mindset and impacting individuals in every area of their life. If the conventional way creativity is taught is effective,  then why do so many people believe they are not creative and struggle to find ways to be creative at work?

 

As Carol Buchner and Maya Angelou say, “People may forget what you said, but they will never forget how you made them feel.” We take a holistic approach to engagements and focus on self-discovery and sustainable impact.

Where is InnovatorsBox located?

Our HQ is Washington, D.C., but we travel quite a lot!

Who is behind InnovatorsBox?

We are a small but hard-working team of innovators from various industries. Some of our team members are on our site, but we certainly attribute our journey to many other individuals, mentors, fans, and friends who have been behind us to help make InnovatorsBox a movement.

What is the social mission of InnovatorsBox?

We do what we do because we want to improve the way we work and live as a society. Most people spend over 80% of their time at work and many of them are highly stressed and even depressed. Why are we accepting this as the norm?

 

We are not only wasting everyone’s creative potential every second, but we’re stunting societal growth. We say creativity is important, but how are we acting on this belief? Each engagement we do, we think of this bigger picture. Each time someone thinks and learns how to be more creative, they are creating their own ripple effect in their communities.

What has been the impact of InnovatorsBox so far?

We’ve been honored to help individuals and organizations unlock the power of creativity worldwide. Please see our Impact Report for additional information about our impact.

About
Our Services

I want to do a workshop/speaking/facilitation with InnovatorsBox….
What is included in the package price?

Details can vary, but all engagements include a 1:1 consultation with us, a customized program, InnovatorsBox products, and a highly interactive in-person session. See each service page to view additional details for workshops, speaking, facilitation, and consultation.

How much does an engagement usually cost?

We get it, price is important and we want to help you plan as much as possible. Our offerings are all based on the following variables instead of the number of hours we spend preparing for your sessions. This way, we are flexible with the amount of time we spend with you as we solve your biggest challenges together. Our pricing variables include:

  • type of engagement
  • type of customization needed for a session
  • # of participants
  • # of hours of sessions
  • # of sessions

Travel and product costs are priced separately.

When should we reach out to work with InnovatorsBox?

The earlier the better! We understand that no two customers are alike, so we spend time getting to know you and customizing a program that meets your goals. Once you have a date, budget, and audience in mind, let us know.

What does InnovatorsBox NOT do?

We may not know how to fly to Mars, but we do know how to make you and your audience see infinite possibilities in addressing your biggest challenges with creativity!

 

That being said, we want to be clear that we do not cover design thinking or improv sessions.

 

We don’t cover design thinking because our focus is different. While design thinking is a great problem-solving tool, it does not help you learn how to think more creatively. Instead, it is a prescriptive solution that is used for specific challenges. That doesn’t help solve the core issue at hand: how to be more creative every day. Furthermore, there is already a lot of amazing design thinking facilitators and workshop organizers. Our specialty and niche is how to build and unlock a creative mindset. If you’re looking for a design thinking solution, we will be delighted to refer you to other partners!

This lack of building a creative mindset is also why we do not do improv sessions.

What will the participants in an InnovatorsBox session walk away with?

Lots of positivity, new perspectives, self-awareness, and practical tools for creativity. No matter what the engagement is, we focus on providing a thoughtful experience for participants to walk away knowing:

  • how creative they are
  • why creativity is important for life and work
  • what they can do to be more creative and stay creative at work and in their lives
  • how creativity can be used to address challenges at work and in their lives
  • that they can rely on others for accountability and support as they explore their creativity.

See how we can help you reach specific goals and business outcomes on each of our service pages.
