City of Charlotte
The City of Charlotte is looking to undertake a number of large, city-defining initiatives, including an Innovation Park and a mixed-use District within the downtown core of the city. Bringing the right partners to the development is key in the District’s long-term success. Innovative Partnerships Group conducted an analysis on the commercial viability of assets within the city, specifically within the mixed-use Sports and Entertainment District around the Hornets’ new training center.
Bison World (Jamestown, North Dakota)
Innovative Partnerships Group was engaged by the Jamestown/Stutsman Development Corporation to create a viable commercial sales strategy and roadmap for Bison World, a planned “destination attraction” and the first theme park centered around Bison, America’s national mammal. Located in Jamestown, ND (“Buffalo City”), Bison World is scheduled to open in 2026 and the theme park is expected to become a tourism gateway for the state with a variety of high value assets for new Naming Rights and Founding Partners.
Portland Timbers Front of Jersey Sponsorship
Innovative Partnerships Group was retained by The Portland Timbers for their most coveted asset – the Front of Jersey sponsorship – for the first time since its inception. Innovative Partnerships Group also worked with the Timbers in 2017 to renew its existing jersey partner and have been actively leveraging its creative studio over the last few months to re-skin custom videos to highlight how new brands can fully integrate with the team. The Timbers have historically been one of the most successful teams in MLS and are pushing for a playoff spot this year. With Lionel Messi providing unprecedented excitement and attention, and MLS’s increased distribution through AppleTV, the Timber’s platform has never been more valuable.
ocV!BE/Anaheim Ducks Development
The Anaheim Ducks will be part of a new, groundbreaking sports and entertainment district that will redefine 100 acres of Anaheim to become the epicenter of Southern California lifestyle activity. Innovative Partnerships Group has been selected to generate long-term commercial revenue for ocV!BE and its numerous planned music venues, parks, dining, hotels and office spaces. The 2028 Olympic Games will host volleyball events at ocV!be, and we are thrilled to be part of this influential project in our own backyard!
