Organizations that support research, innovation, entrepreneurs, and communities (collectively defined as innovation intermediaries) are constantly asked to demonstrate their impact on their clients and the economy. However, accurately capturing this impact is complex and efforts to do so frequently fail.

TEN offers a variety of approaches from targeted network analysis pieces, to summarizing impact profiles appropriate for communicating impact to external stakeholders, to an in-depth impact assessment report that provides deep insight into the mechanisms of impact at play within your organization.
