Lexa is the co-founder and Principal of Open Innovations Group, LLC (OIG). Open Innovations Group provides SMEs with an outsourced open innovations platform for sourcing and vetting external consumer product concepts to license and develop in-house. Lexa is also the Executive Director of Invent New England, one of the oldest independent organizations in the country dedicated to supporting and educating independent inventors.
Her passion for inventing and helping other inventors is fueled by lessons learned with her own product invention, Cargo Caddie. Cargo Caddie is a stowable trunk shelf that nearly doubles usable trunk space for most SUV/CUVs in the market. She is currently working to license Cargo Caddie, and has begun development on several other consumer products through the company she founded in 2019, ACG Designs, LLC.
Prior to her launching the above efforts, Lexa was Principal of 3210 Consulting, a website design and software development company she founded in 2002. She oversaw all business development and acted as the company’s chief business analyst for the company’s 65+ small business clients and over $700,000 in annual revenue. She sold the company after 11 years.
