HomeAbout Tioga


Thought Leaders have visionary insight that brings innovation, incites change and is recognized by industry peers. Joel Kurtzman, editor-in-chief of Strategy & Business magazine, coined this term in the early 90s to describe people interviewed by his magazine that contributed pioneering thoughts to business and challenged the status quo.

While often claimed erroneously, the term "Thought Leader" without question applies to Tioga Venture as they continually strive to discover, innovate, challenge, and probe the industry in which they have immersed themselves. Tioga willingly takes risks, engages in discussion, and then applies their insight to the challenges at hand. Recognized by their peers as thought leaders in the venture consulting industry, the Tioga Venture team continually receives requests to pen white papers, present keynote speeches, and participate or lead roundtable panel discussions to share their vision and expertise. While many people claim to be thought leaders, Tioga Venture doesn't claim, they just lead.
