How to Work With Us

Our team of expert innovation consultants is here to help you solve your most challenging business problems. Ready to get started? Follow the instructions below to begin your project.

If you want to learn more about us first, see how we can help and check out some of the types of projects we’ve completed recently.

1. Request

To begin a project with the BIO team, submit a project request.

You will receive an acknowledgment email and a message from one of the BIO leaders. We meet weekly to review requests, so you should receive a message within 5 business days.

2. Meet

Within 2 weeks, we will email you to schedule an intake meeting where we will discuss:

  • Your business challenges.
  • Your primary project objectives.
  • An ideal timeline for your project.
  • Any other relevant information.

3. Define

If we determine that your project is appropriate for our team after the intake meeting, we will develop a project proposal for you to review.

Once you approve the proposal, we will assign you a consultant who will review the proposal and work with your team to produce a project charter.

4. Begin

Once you approve the charter, we will schedule a kickoff meeting.

At this point, we consider your project active and will begin working with you to accomplish your goals.
