innov8edu provides strategic services to small and mid-sized public and private, non-profit colleges and universities.

Our team is dedicated to the proposition that American higher education is closing in on a tipping point at which radical disruption of the current business model will yield altogether a new or several new business models.  Top-tier colleges and universities will no doubt continue to explore innovation -- and thrive -- within the prevailing business model that has been in place for more than a century.  But those institutions not in the top-tier will not be so lucky.  They need to move out of the "red ocean" strategy of competing on price and find "blue ocean" strategies that place them so uniquely distant from others that they can compete on the basis of a new model of higher education.
