What does your company do?
I need a name for my new business! I am a veteran corporate innovator, and after 25+ years I am launching my own executive innovation advisory. I will serve as a Chief Innovation Officer for hire; in other words, executive teams (c-level) will hire me on an ad-hoc or as needed basis. Services I will perform: innovation strategy, executive innovation advisor, innovation team start-up, innovation pipeline development. Think of me as innovation horsepower for executive teams that are stuck, or are looking to find new sources of growth for their company.
I need the name to be sophisticated enough to appeal to senior executives, but it must also express my expertise and services. I am also open to a riff on my name: Rachel Antalek

What is your industry?
Consulting and Professional Services
Describe your customers
My customers will be executive leaders (CEO, Chief Marketing/Growth/Strategy Officer) of companies in the restaurant/retail/hospitality business.
These executives are busy, and need innovation expertise. They may not be able to afford an executive level innovator, but they know they need more robust innovation expertise. They are looking to maximize their innovation investment.
In my field (restaurant/retail/hospitality), innovation is traditionally focused on product innovation. More recently, it is focused on delivery and digital. My services are designed to help senior leadership teams get beyond these 3 innovation segments and find new avenues for growth through innovation.
