How To Monetize Your Certificate

What is GInI in Innovation?

About 92% of organizations believe that good knowledge of innovation is critical to organizational success. Certainly the current pandemic has spurred innovation and organizations are delighted to see the adoption of some innovative solutions at a faster pace in a variety of industries. Unfortunately, certified professionals in innovation are barely seen and if they are, they carry the wrong certification.

GInI® stands for the Global Innovation Institute. GInI® is the world’s leading professional certification, accreditation, and membership association in the field of innovation.
