Philip Barton: Founder, Ideas About Innovation and TriStar Research LLC

Having wond down my intellectual property venture, UpperVal Capital LLC, I am seeking a new opportunity to join a collaborative, high tech, customer-focused team at a rapidly growing firm. Challenge Breeds Opportunity ! I love good poetry and good quotations as they are an essential source of inspiration and I think one of my early inspirations was Napoleon Hill who said:

Your big opportunity may be right where you are now. Napoleon Hill
I have always loved being exposed to new ideas across multiple disciplines. And my admiration for entrepreneurs, pioneers and idea champions has been lifelong as has my own desire to learn new thins every day. My main work motivator has been intrinsic motivation – the challenge, the freedom and purpose of an undertaking are the drivers for me. Two areas I’ve excelled at are: in analysis which leads to making the best decisions using primary source information despite having some information gaps, and in finding paths to business development that are people-centric, resource stingy and creative.


I’ve loved working with mentors and engaging with multidisciplinary team on common, high value consensual goals- that’s how one learns !

My background is laid out in my LinkedIn Profile and my WebFolio for your review and please contact me if you want to discuss ways IAI can help your organization !
