The Thought Leadership & Innovation Foundation (TLI) was formed in 2011 to support transformational change projects across healthcare and special education.
Our founders worked together in public and private sector roles and sought to create a nonprofit entity that would enable greater research, transformation and collaboration in a “safe space”
Led by Bill Oldham, a health and education entrepreneur
Senior Advisors and Fellows include thought leaders across health community, education, economic empowerment, and innovation
For more than 25 years, TLI’s leadership team have developed strong working relationships with US universities and aided in their varied pursuits of international, commercial and federal programs. Our strategic clinical and educational partners range from Mayo Clinic and Harvard University to top DC metro universities.
Currently, TLI supports the Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins University, the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, and the BADER Consortium which supports the University of Delaware, Harvard, and the Mayo Clinic.

Starting from a small contract in 2010 supporting the US Federal Health Futures Group, TLI has developed strong relationships and programs across a number of academic organizations. Our team has grown to include numerous Senior Advisors and Fellows with expertise in many program areas specific to the research and development goals of our partners.
TLI is all about providing the necessary thought leadership to promote innovative thinking and new research that leads to transformative change in each area.
TLI’s scientific purpose is to advance the development and delivery of personalized healthcare, and to build a safer, cleaner and more sustainable future for humanity.
