About Ideation

As indicated by its name, Ideation, Inc., was founded based on the defining concept of the ideation process, which encompasses the conception of an idea, which leads to innovation, then to development, and finally to actualization. The ideation process is all about coming up with potential solutions for a problem.

Ideation specializes in creative product design and development. We apply our expertise in the fields of data analytics, technology, engineering, education, transportation, emergency management, and hazard mitigation to software, program management, and training products and services for civilian government agencies.
