Menlo Innovations


Founded in 2001, Menlo Innovations was inspired by the creative and productive work environment demonstrated at Thomas Edison’s Menlo Park, New Jersey “Invention Factory.” By 2007, Menlo had become one of Inc. 500’s fastest growing privately held firms in the US. What makes this story truly remarkable is that it occurred against the backdrop of an IT industry that everyone assumed was leaving the US for offshore.

Like Edison, the driving factor behind everything Menlo does is to create useful and marketable products that deliver real business value. The principles of the team environment that Edison established over 120 years ago still hold true today.

Our accounting firm recommended that we talk to the engineers at Hull & Knarr. To be honest, I was on the fence initially. But the H&K folks were a pleasure to work with and guided us through the process. They helped us to understand how the Research & Experimentation Tax Credit applied to our business, and suggested several adjustments to our operations that allowed us to more effectively utilize the credit. I am very happy with the results.
