Founded during the global pandemic, Innovate P3 was formed to address the continuing challenges in public-private partnerships (P3s). Starting during a period of unprecedented change, we have been agile in adapting to new ways of working with clients and team members around the country, leveraging technology, and responding to the shifting needs of our professional and client communities.

Since focusing initially on public-private partnerships, Innovate P3’s services have expanded rapidly to fill a variety of client needs in strategic project planning, management, and oversight for many types of capital development initiatives in the public and private sectors. Driven by a commitment to excellence and innovation, we plan to develop and integrate new software tools into our broadening scope of services to meet better the demands of a diverse range of sectors.

Looking towards the future, Innovate P3 is focused on measured growth and further distinguishing itself in the consulting and technology industries. We will be building a team of skilled professionals who share our vision for transformative and sustainable solutions and who have strong communication, engagement, and logical reasoning skills. We also will forge new partnerships that align with our core values and contribute to our dynamic, collaborative environment.

Having established its footing during challenging times, we are confident and excited about the opportunities that lie ahead. We welcome those who are eager to contribute to and grow with us, as we continue to redefine excellence in partnerships and project delivery!
