IPN is a systems-focused, revenue building, project creation and project finance company that aligns and develops co-creative methods, digital tools, and symbiotic win-win-win models for municipalities, counties, and enterprise.

We design and implement projects with our clients that lay the foundation for the next generation of innovative growth and health strategies that bundle economic, social, and environmental concerns while empowering and attracting citizens and organizations that want to invest in our people, places, and systems.


Community Strength

Rests upon strong foundations that adapt to shifting natural, political, and cultural systems. We co-develop new ways for our communities to thrive as we transition from industrial age operating structures into a knowledge economy and a next generation manufacturing economy supported by the creative, flexible, and profitable implementation of resilient and regenerative infrastructures designed to tackle our most pressing problems. 

Invested Public/Private Partnership (IPP3™) model

(the next generation Public/Private Partnership models)

  1. Catalyze citizen, business, and organizational agency

  2. Generate new revenue streams for the community

  3. Strengthen the existing local capital base, while expanding your attractiveness to regional and national Impact capital flows ($30+ trillion growing opportunity)

  4. Circulate wider project access to your community

  5. Ground project creation strategy to your specific economic, social, and environmental needs

  6. Deploy performance data to build new histories and systems capabilities

  7. Expand local "invested public" knowledge

 Build 7 value-actions into your project(s)

The IPN project creation process can stand alone or be paired with our project implementation, management and financing platform building access to trillions in new capital

Our project creation process helps communities build capacity and deepen their strategy by identifying and implementing projects phases to activate short-, mid-, and long-term productive value designed around local returns.


is a municipality/county-focused project implementation, management, engagement, and financing platform that distributes information, gathers knowledge, and aligns capital.

Project Creation Process


Financing Platform



According to the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) we have under-invested in infrastructure to the point that these inefficiencies and inadequacies will cause the loss of $10 trillion in GDP and lead to a decline of more than $23 trillion in business productivity cumulatively over the next two decades if the U.S. does not close the growing gap in our infrastructure investment.

A huge problem? Most definitely yes. But also, foundational/infrastructure systems are where the next massive growth opportunity is for our municipalities, counties, enterprises, and investors. IPN strategy is to work with our clients to combine new innovative public/private structures, digital tools, and financing strategies capable of generating incredible economic, social, and environmental value.


This will not happen like it did in the past (taking on huge debt loads, 40+ year payback models, and non-contextualize project "solutions"). We will need to throw everything at it to make the turn, but by building all of our stakeholders (citizen, business, government, organization and institutional investors) into these new models, we will be able to increase our productivity while building community surpluses to help tackle the problems of the future.

IPN co-creates with our clients projects in the following sectors.

Please review and learn about the next, huge opportunity we have as a nation.


There is no question about this! We need ACTUAL high-speed broadband fiber that lays the foundation for increased productivity growth in all of our municipalities, counties, villages, and townships.

What we have is 162 million American that do not even get 25Mbs download and 3Mbs upload, which is considered “high-speed”, but it is not high-speed. Doesn’t even come close! We need real high-speed to in order to craft transition, moving forward projects that generate surpluses in our communities.

For electricity–including generation facilities, transmission and distribution–the cumulative investment gap between 2016 and 2025 is estimated to be $177 billion. Increased investment in alternative sources of energy for power generation, heating and cooling, transportation, and process industries is needed for a sustainable future, but investment in this area lags, principally due to a lack of federal energy policy.


What can we do locally, with government and public owned energy systems, to lower costs and create a resilient energy system that supports our citizens, businesses and environmental needs?


Farmers want and need supportive programs  that help them transition into the new, creative world of organic and regenerative agriculture methods. Once the transition is complete, these farmers deliver better products, receive higher profit margins, and reduce the cost of many externalities that affect municipalities and counties.

Modern Room How do agriculturally orientated communities attract farmers that want to transition from old, soil damaging planting strategies to new, soil generating ones?


What are the new strategies for investing in our water infrastructure? How do we contextually position water within our communities for optimal economic growth and health strategies? How can we bundle multiple revenue streams into our water projects to make them viable and supportive to all our citizens?

We have a $2.9 Trillion GAP in funding water infrastructure going out to 2039. This GAP as a projected $4.5 Trillion loss to our GDP within the same time-frame according to American Society of Civil Engineers 2020 Report. And this does not even address the creativity and flexibility we need to employ to adapt to changes in how water is redistributing itself across the continent.


Creative and flexible strategies are what we need to bridge this GAP. We have new challenges and growing demands. Bringing more creativity and aligned capital is key to generating dynamic contextualized solutions.


What makes a small, mid-sized town attractive to the creative class - people who want to blend commerce with community? An active lifestyle with health

Our project and funding focus in not on roads, bridges, or any other "heavy lift" projects in the US, but rather in strategies that support density, commerce, livability, sustainability and are multi-functional, multi-return in design and implementation.

Next Generation Manufacturing

The appropriate next generation manufacturing strategy starts with contextually appropriate projects that support a strong, healthy, and resilient foundation.

How do we lay the foundation of our communities to attract, support, and gestate next generation manufacturing companies?
