About Innovio

Innovio Ventures combines Innovio Academy and boutique consulting services.

Founded by Vera Tkach, former McKinsey & Company consultant and University of Chicago MBA graduate.

Innovio Academy is dedicated to developing practical, must-have skills to accelerate personal and professional growth. We offer online courses, custom programs and 1:1 coaching.

In business consulting we serve a few select companies ready for their next growth curve. Companies that aim to make a positive impact on the world and potentially are a market disruptor/differentiator. For them and their management/founders we strive to become a trusted advisor and a thought and execution partner.

We believe that knowledge is for sharing. Sharing knowledge, in turn, leads to transformation and growth, both in personal and business arenas.
