UNM Rainforest Innovations

Recent graduates from the UNM Anderson School of Management, Dharish Totiger and Mark Niederhaus, have co-founded a consulting company specializing in support for strategizing how to commercialize products and services. Dharish Totiger was a former student intern at UNM Rainforest Innovations and both him and Mark Niederhaus have been involved in various student pitch deck competitions and activities through the New Mexico Rainforest University Center.

“While going through our MBA programs at UNM, we realized that there is a substantial number of individuals with promising and innovative business ideas, many of them being technology-driven,” said Mark Niederhaus. “However, we also found a recurring theme- a numerous amount of these aspiring entrepreneurs and businesspeople need assistance in developing those business ideas/research developments into successful companies. Thus, Innogility was established with this goal in mind: we are an independent business consulting firm providing value to aspiring entrepreneurs and established businesspeople in the areas of customer discovery, market validation, commercialization, and overall business development. Our immediate future plans include expanding our services to help startups establish a strong online presence by offering web development, social media marketing and content management, etc.”

New Local Entrepreneurial Endeavor – Innogility

February 9, 2023 – Megan Borders

Recent Anderson graduates Dharish Totiger, MS-ISA and MBA ’22, and Mark Niederhaus, MBA ’22, have co-founded a new entrepreneurial venture in Albuquerque called Innogility, LLC. Innogility is a consulting company for clients with new products and services who want help strategizing how to commercialize their products or services.

Dharish and Mark met as students at Anderson, and thanks to their participation and teamwork in the Spring 2022 Tech Navigator Challenge, they discovered that they work well together and officially launched their company in August 2022.

Looking back at their Anderson experience, they reminisced about classes such as Business and Society, Strategic Management, Applied Investment Management and Business and Development because of the teachings of responsible business practices and the ability to practice what was taught in the course.

They advise current students to take full advantage of as many resources and extracurricular activities as Anderson provides, from student competitions to internships to student groups and many others. Their participation in these areas helped Dharish and Mark find their passion and interests in technology and entrepreneurship and, most importantly, how to combine them into a career.

Congratulations, Dharish and Mark, on your new venture! We look forward to seeing where your entrepreneurial endeavors take you.
