First, your ideas remain exclusively yours. Our goal is not to find solutions to funding problems for your groundbreaking opportunity or partner with you for a percentage of your profits; However, this program is completely about ensuring you achieve success in delivering your projects. We assist you in working more strategically and effectively, with less stress and a greater assurance of success. This removes the mindset that typically defeats us when we are faced with obstacles because Tye will teach you how to see obstacles as the solutions to problems. In doing so, the path becomes clearer and more achievable, and you will quickly understand that “YOU can do this”.
Second, Tye only works with ideas that have “Societal Scale Potential”, i.e., concepts that enrich the lives of the ideator and society as a whole. Far too often humanity introduces disposable products with the sole purpose of being used for 6 months to a year and then discarded into a landfill for eternity. For this reason, TDN is very selective with the ideators we work with because 100% of our effort goes towards empowering a move toward building ideas that have grand consequences from the standpoint of societal impact. If selected, Tye will help you to ideate in scale from both an impact and opportunity standpoint.
You retain 100% of your intellectual property and rights. Tye is here to coach and guide only, and he has always believed that the ideas of a true innovator are very difficult to steal, especially in their early stages, because only the person who conceived the idea has the reference points necessary to envision its evolution into the groundbreaking solution being ideated. You have some of the pieces to the puzzle, and they are yours alone. Tye will help you to collect more pieces and fit them where appropriate, to build that game-changing solution. He never works on an idea, only above the surface, where he can leverage his observational vantage point experiences to assist you in connecting more pieces to make up the sum total. TDN guarantees that your information, ideas, and vision will remain protected and completely yours.
At TDN, we are not investment angels, venture capitalists, or start-up incubators/accelerators. This program is solely about ideation and assisting you in moving your project yourself, through to your selected end goal. While guidance will additionally include suggestions and advice on the “What to do” and “How to do it” questions that already exist, TDN focus on assisting you in breaking any seemingly insurmountable project or task, into smaller workable outcomes. When combined, the smaller outcomes constitute the delivery of those ideas you once may have abandoned earlier in life. In considering the race between the turtle and the hare, you are taught to be like the turtle, and you will learn how to move through each idea with patience, perseverance, stamina, and the knowledge that you are always “More near than before”.
Tye’s goal and objective with Think Different Nation (TDN) is to bring constructive and beneficial innovation to life. Think of it this way: It can be said that the richest places in the world are cemeteries because they are filled with ideas and innovations that will never be realized. Why? Because the people lying in the graves were not able to bring their ideas to fruition. Cures to disease, ideas to solve the world’s energy challenges, solutions to global warming have all undoubtedly died with their ideator simply because that person wasn’t, for whatever reason, able to deliver it.
As Albert Einstein once stated, “We cannot solve the world’s problems with the same thinking we used to create them” and while those ideas may not have been the singular solution to the problems we face, innovation consists of many varied ideas sourced from any number of experiences. TDN seeks to assist you in connecting more pieces and adding more value and references points. Who knows, yours could be the next mind-blowing idea that changes the world!
You do. You bring the ideas and Tye will provide you with the tools necessary to collect and connect your dots.
