Description

Jennifer Smith has grown Innovative Office Solutions into one of the largest independent office supply companies in the nation since she co-founded it in 2001, growing it to more than $100 million in annual revnue. Despite the industry’s 5 to 7 percent annual contraction, Smith has achieved a 94 percent growth rate over three consecutive years, and has secured partnerships with the University of Minnesota and many Minnesota sports teams. This growth placed Innovative on the 2017’s Inc. 5000 fastest-growing privately held companies list for the past nine years. To maintain such a pace, Smith will need to keep thinking outside the box.
