In 2014 MVP in collaboration with Providence College launched the first “Intangibles Valuation Committee” Task Force through the Rhode Island State Society of CPAs – the first of its kind in the country.

“It is impossible to have a successful society now when a few are empowered and most are dis-empowered.” This has become the true crises of “energy” we face now. The challenge for the 21 st century business model as well as our 21 st century educational system hinges directly upon the facilitation of empowerment and until these paradigms shift to one of supporting and cultivating the “energy” of empowerment they simply will not, they cannot thrive”.
