Accelerator members are forward-thinkers — whether they are rising talents in established firms, innovative entrepreneurs, or driven intrapreneurs — committed to driving the change needed to realize visionary goals. They are smart enough to be humble, lifelong learners, and driven by having impact in their organizations, industries, and the world.

By joining the Outthinker Accelerators Network, you will gain access to an exclusive suite of resources, collaboration opportunities with peers, connections with thought-leaders and executive mentors, and member-only educational events designed to accelerate the development of leaders who not only envision, but also enact, significant impact.​

Why members join:

What you get

Monthly virtual roundtables with a renowned thought leader and your peers to discuss a top-of-mind topic chosen by you and other members (e.g., AI, political influence, geopolitical trends, leading a team, managing up, business model design, getting permission to experiment)

Access a members-only platform loaded with tools, guides, methodologies, and session summaries tailored to the needs of accelerator members

Attend or assemble one-hour, online, structured brainstorming sessions with peers and coaches to problem-solve, share tips, and get practical advice on navigating your innovation

Regular updates and briefs on the latest trends, books, and concepts in innovation management to stay ahead of the curve

A secure and supportive environment where you can share, explore, and refine new ideas and help peers develop theirs

Why join us?

If you are a strategy or innovation geek, if you are a business builder, if you are an entrepreneur or intrapreneur that thinks differently, that sees possibilities where others see roadblocks, we would love to have you join us.

Building on Kaihan Krippendorff’s five books, decades of research, and the latest concepts from some today’s most influential strategy and innovation thought-leaders, we seek to help clients unlock the power of internally-driven innovation. We help innovators see, choose, and build support for more creative strategic options that unlock new growth and shape a future that works for business, their careers, society, and the environment.
