Are you an innovator seeking funding for your big ideas in the corporate setting?


Innovation starts with ideas. However, many innovators have great ideas, but fail to get project funding for even the most promising opportunities. Why? They fail to meet the needs of notoriously risk-averse executives. Words are heard — you must present a business case with market analysis, customer research, revenue forecasts, etc. — but innovators often struggle to build proposals that executives find compelling enough on which to stake corporate funds and their reputation.
The Savvy Corporate Innovator provides an insider’s view of how innovators can succeed in complex corporations and successfully pass the ultimate test for funding, the 'executive inquisition.' Through Simpson’s twenty years of working with dozens of large (E.g. IBM, AT&T, Motorola, Tyco) and small companies as well as managing hundreds of innovation projects, he shares the secrets of selling ideas to those who control the resources. Using compelling stories, dialogs, and extended case studies, he systematically addresses the challenges innovators face when seeking support and funding for their big ideas. By using the strategies and steps found in the book, innovators learn to turn these challenges into successfully funded opportunities.
Are you seeking project funds for your next BIG idea? The Savvy Corporate Innovator will enable you to:
  • Get your ideas heard and funded in complex corporate environments
  • Systematically transform ideas into real business opportunities
  • Powerfully communicate ideas in a way that executives need to hear
  • Present the exact information executives expect during a funding request
  • Prepare for the ultimate funding meeting—the executive inquisition
  • Build your career and brand as a respected innovator
What reviewers say:
“Ideas are fragile things and conveying them to others, especially executives, can be painfully difficult. Dorian delivers just what you need to sell your idea with success.” - Greg Gudorf, Sony, Technicolor, The Gudorf Group
“I wish I had this book years ago. More of my ideas and suggestions would have been approved. Dorian clearly knows of what he speaks.” - Richard Fast, Plant Manager and Captain, US Navy, Retired

About the Author:

DORIAN SIMPSON teaches corporations, teams and individual innovators how to thrive at the front end of innovation. Starting his career with IBM, he climbed the corporate ladder at various companies from ATT, Motorola and startups to become an executive in product management, sales, engineering and general management— always focused on bringing innovations to life. With hundreds of innovation projects over 20 years, Dorian has refined the tools and concepts found in The Savvy Corporate Innovator. Through consulting and training, he’s inspired thousands of product professionals and helped them transform into effective innovation leaders responsible for billions in new products. His clients and workshop participants appreciate his ability to balance the conceptual world of innovation with the tactical world of business execution. Dorian also trained product leaders in China since 2007, where his programs consistently sell out. He has a BSEE from Northwestern University and a MBA from the University of San Diego. He currently lives in Portland, Oregon.
