Smarter-Companies helps advisors and their clients better understand and measure the intangibles that drive financial and strategic success.
Our company was launched in January 2013 but its roots go back many years to the work of Mary Adams in the development of practical intangible capital concepts in U.S. middle market companies, the book she co-authored Intangible Capital—and to the IC Knowledge Center, a site and community first launched in 2006. Our name came from Mary's long-time blog called, you guessed it, Smarter Companies.
We have already trained more than 40 ICountants on five continents. It's an incredibly diverse group including experts in innovation, risk management, valuation, transfer pricing, accounting, intellectual property, engineering, technology and management consulting.
For 2014, our goals are pretty focused:
We are currently developing ICounts Graphs projects in the software, service, non-profit, education, marketing, accounting, private equity, knowledge management, healthcare and franchise industries...and we're just getting started!
Do any of these efforts sound interesting to you? There are plenty of ways to support our movement and build your business. Hope you'll join us!
