A growing library of disruptors

Innovators are organized into 10 categories that are connected to the largest pain points in the industry and the areas where leaders are desperately searching solutions nationwide

By selecting a category the full library is refined down to a more select list that helps you find the ideas you need and eliminates the ones you don’t have time to search through

Innovation Packets

Each disruptor idea featured has a corresponding Innovation Packet offering 6 pieces of on-demand, downloadable content. This content is available 24/7 to members and is updated every 90 days. The main pieces include:

Executive Summary: a 2-3 page look at the disruptor’s new care model, a step-by-step of the services and care process and the business model details including funding information, background on the founders and partnership movement as they grow.

Business Slide: an overview of the company and care model available immediately for an executive presentation or strategy session. Just drag it directly into your presentation deck.

Video Slide: another, but much more visual, pre-formatted option created by the companies for your presentations.


The content doesn’t stop there

ZIGZAG Innovation Packets also provide additional content on each disruptor company.

Video Link: the source of our video content for you to incorporate in any other project you are creating.

List of Resources: the list of publicly available information and stories that gives the background for the Executive Summary. We know you could find this all yourself, but we just do all the dirty, time-consuming work for you. Plus, if you want to do a deep dive on the company, this is the perfect place to start.

Service Area Map: a quick picture of where the company is operating, where their services are available and where they are headquartered across the US.
