Mountain of Ideas is the inspiration that comes from the innovative development through hard work, creative execution and implementation of ideas for the B2B and the B2C customers. When selling to a business or customer there are different processes in order to communicate effectively.

An action originates from an idea and knowing how to execute. Perhaps you have heard this story. A man is tormented by a squeak in his wood floor. He’s already tried dozens of ways to fix it, but nothing helped. Finally the man hears of a true craftsman and invites him to try. The carpenter enters the room and quickly locates the squeak. He lowers himself to the spot, removes a hammer and nail from his toolbox, and after a few quick whacks he stands and begins to scribble out the invoice. Before accepting the bill, the man tests the spot and there is no trace of the old squeak. He reads the bill: Nail $1.25, knowing where to hammer $48.75.

Mountain of Ideas provides service in the following areas:


Think Tank

When looking for a Mountain of Ideas let our Think Tank go to work for you. Creativity is the result of effort: toiling, striving, refining, testing, experimenting… The work itself results in inspiration, which results in an idea. Big ideas come from people and organizations who do, not from people and organizations who dream.

Create an environment of innovation through these strategies:

  • Combine Ideas – facilitate the intersection of ideas through research and development.
  • Think Backwards – we start with the end product in mind and work back towards a fundamental idea. Ever mindful of practicality, cost and technology.
  • Rapid Prototype – we innovate rigorously to drive an idea from pen and paper to full mock up as fast as possible.
  • Develop Incubation Chamber – we assist to develop an environment that is outside of the business network as we invite a culture to think ‘out-of-the-box.’ Instill behavior that is open and gets a life of its own, one that is out of the budget thinking. We want NEW ideas that are different from the safe zones within the organization.
  • It’s In The Clouds – we utilize a cloud based atmosphere that incorporates around the clock idea generation from the team. A central hub to track and grow conceptually.
  • Mountain of Ideas – our team will go to work for you. We put on those proverbial ‘think tank’ hats and innovate, create and reach for the sky.
