Innovation Framework Technologies was founded in 2006 with the absolute conviction that the only sustainable source of profitable growth, the only reason to invest in companies in the future, is their ability to innovate and differentiate.
Our mission is therefore to help every client improve their innovation performance.
We achieve this by helping clients adopt innovation best-practices tailored to their strategy, business model and culture. We automate these processes with market-leading software, delivering results quickly, sustainably & cost effectively.
The results are clear: reduced time-to-market, increased new product success rates, and higher return on innovation investment.
Innovation Framework has grown consistently since 2007, and now has regional offices in the United States, France, South Korea & Japan, with associate offices in Latin America and the Middle East. We support clients in every region around the world.
