About i2i

i2i was founded by Anindya Mukherjee after 20 years in the corporate world. He noticed that entrepreneurs focusing on innovation with outstanding ideas often lacked the comprehensive set of skills, experience and tools necessary to transform their ideas into innovative products.

To fill that gap, Anindya started i2i, a Management Consulting Platform that brings together the capabilities and expertise needed to transform your inventive ideas into innovative products. The i2i team is a loosely knit yet tightly woven group of specialists with diverse talents, skills, capabilities and experiences needed to transform your inventive ideas into innovative products without having to navigating through red tape and bureaucracy.

i2i can help you focus on what is important – carry out only those tasks and actions necessary to introduce your products, develop your technology, form your partnerships, or finance your operations.

Whether analyzing the potential for your products, or their markets; shaping or executing business strategy; developing technologies or products; or marketing those products; i2i can help you identify issues, solve problems, and uncover and exploit new opportunities.
