IPN brings to your project development worktable a creative learning framework aligning our new digital platform to model funding initiatives designed to attract a growing asset community of people and entities seeking ways to co-invest in local projects and systems with economic, social, and environmental return attributes.

We co-develop projects with:

Communities

Municipalities, counties, villages, and townships with a desire co-create projects that attract and successively grow their access to trillions in new, private capital.

Service Providers

Firms that want to access this growing pool of capital by designing and implementing their projects through a new innovative public/private partnership model.

An Idea for Communities Receiving Stimulus Funds

IPN believes it is massively important for communities to expand and extend the impact of these funds to create strong/sustainable foundations for growth long after the stimulus has been spent. Start integrating into your project development process strategies and tactics designed to generate new pools of capital to support concurrent projects.

Community Strength

Rests upon 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 revenue generating implementation of resilient and regenerative infrastructures designed to tackle our most pressing problems. 

The IPN project creation process is assembled from the following:

7 Value Actions

Our creative steps lead to co-designed projects that:

  • Catalyze citizen, business and organizational agency

  • Generate new revenue streams for the community

  • Strengthen your existing local capital base, while expanding your attractiveness to regional and national IMPACT capital flows ($30+ trillion and growing)

  • Circulate wider project access to your community

  • Ground project creation strategies to your specific economic, social, and environmental needs

  • Deploy performance data to build new systems and capacities

  • Expand local knowledge

Opportunities

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. This translates into a per household cost/loss of $3,300.

A huge problem? Most definitely yes. But, it is also our next massive growth opportunity. There are a huge number of scalable everyday infrastructure and economic development projects that sit at the intersecting needs of local/state/federal government, enterprises and our citizens. We know that we can design these projects in ways that generate healthy revenues, have appropriate layers of social and environmental returns, while attracting new pools of capital for concurrent projects. It is also imperative to design and implement these types of projects to effectively regain our local, regional, and global competitive edge. To create cooperative efficiencies and benefit from joint livelihoods. Our productivity and ability to generate surpluses depends upon this transition. And, our ability to adapt to and tackle future problems depends upon this transition.

What type of projects are we talking about? Well, we have the large, heavy lift infrastructure projects, such as roads and bridges that will continue to use traditional financing means to be accomplished. However, what we are talking about here are small- and mid-sized everyday infrastructure and economic development projects contextualized to our people and places:

Revenue generating projects.

Innovative social and ecological projects.

Data and knowledge projects.

Circulating capital projects.

Creating the foundation of our next generation of livelihood projects.

These important projects are sitting on the shelves in our offices and our minds waiting to be organized and deployed.

Everyday Infrastructure

Projects

Communications

We we have is 162 million American that do not even get 25Mbs download and 3Mbs upload speeds which are considered "high-speed" but are not even close to high-speed. IPN has co-developed with an enterprise partner a 1 GBs high-speed broadband model that generates revenues for communities and has built into it a self-sustaining lower-middle income citizen support structure.

Water

We have a $2.9 trillion gap in funding water infrastructure going out to 2039 ASCE. This gap has a projected $4.5 trillion loss to our GDP within the same time-frame. Creative, flexible development and funding strategies are what we need to bridge this gap. We have to adapt to the new challenges and growing demands with strategies that generate dynamic contextualized solutions.

Energy/Power

Across generation, transmission, and distribution we have a $177 billion funding gap going out to 2026. IPNs focus is co-develop and bring funding to municipality-owned local energy projects that lower costs, create business opportunities and build in a powerful resilience into the community.

Transportation

Roads, bridges and other "heavy lift" projects are not our direct focus. Rather our strategies figure out how to bundle projects that support density, commerce, livability, sustainability and can derive multiple-returns.

Agriculture

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. What programs/projects can we develop that supports this transition in a sustainable way?

Next Generation Manufacturing

Contextually appropriate projects that lay the foundation to attract our next generation manufacturing companies. This requires a mix of economic development projects and everyday infrastructure project that not only generate efficiencies and are productivity enhancing but are also designed for resiliency.

Health

Lots of work to do here. We have some ideas, but this area is so locally deterministic that our IPN Team would just help guide our clients creative team into developing a citizen appropriate fundable model.

Housing

At the beginning of the IPN creation story, when we were just an idea, the first community we pitched loved our general approach and direct us to the housing department to help them with their affordable housing issues. To say the least, we were not prepared for the massive issues that come up. However, we have come a long way since then and have developed a rough framework for a model we believe might have some legs. Hit us up if interested.

Data & Knowledge

Data and knowledge is the relatively new $5 trillion dollar opportunity, and we are not talking about advertising. IPN has multiple strategies and supportive tactics that are designed to generate additional revenue streams for communities, their investor and their enterprise partners.

Step 1:

IPN engages your local everyday infrastructure needs and economic development situation through two lenses:

Your Problem Space

What do you have?

What do you need?

Your Potential Options and Capabilities

What might we use from what you have to build towards what you need?

Step 2:

 Define your project creation and implementation strategy.

Step 3:

 What is the appropriate ownership entity for the municipality, county, village, or township? And/or what is the public/private partnership structure?

Step 4:

How do the project co-creators participate?

Step 5:

Project financing strategy that attracts new pools of local and entity capital seeking multiple layers of returns.

Step 6:

Ongoing collaboration processes for all the project creators involved addressing present and future needs.

The first IPN project model:

Is a scalable high-speed broadband fiber project with a built in social support program for low income families designed for small and mid-sized communities.

Aligning Client and IPN Capabilities

"Working through IPN's interactive project design framework, clients explore initiative and offering options that will increase their capabilities to tailor projects to the local context, to sustain and grow local resources by generating new revenue streams and to build a flow of successive projects that will attract support from a growing, powerful asset community."
