“The Avera PACE team is constantly on the lookout for companies who can make an impact within our affiliate network,” said Ryan Donovan, Director of Avera PACE.

Donovan said the portfolio of products offered through The Innovation Institute covers a broad area of business verticals and will resonate with all of their affiliate members in some way. “The synergies developing between Avera PACE and The Innovation Institute will yield positive results for not only Avera PACE affiliate members, but also The Innovation Institute Enterprise Development Group (EDG) companies for years to come,” concluded Donovan.

The Innovation Institute President & CEO Joe Randolph said, “We are pleased to add our portfolio of service companies to the Avera PACE group purchasing organization. PACE has a great reputation and we think this relationship will be mutually beneficial and will help us grow our portfolio companies, while providing services at a competitive price.”
