What is an Innovation Architect?
An Innovation Architect goes beyond consulting. They work with a client from the spark or inception of an idea for a business, all the way to launch. From research to results, whether you need a simple website or brick and mortar storefront, Jacqui is your cheerleader, supporter, and business guide who provides start-up incubation-level guidance on a personal one-on-one scale. Beyond providing expert advice professionally, an innovation architect provides start-up incubation-level guidance on a personal one-on-one scale.
Jacqueline decided to use the title “Innovation Architect” because it encapsulates the scope of what she knew was needed for her clients.
About Jacqueline Bell
Committed to the Passion Behind the Business
Jacqueline Bell Innovation Architect (JBIA) is the culmination of years of entrepreneurship, women’s empowerment, and feminism in innovation, which came to life in early 2021. Jacqueline’s dream to help women connect to their own confidence and inner boss to turn their passions and talents into a profitable business led her to begin the innovation architecture business.
In the final semester of her senior year at Smith College, where she majored in economics and foreign politics, Jacqueline led a team of 4 women through 3 shark-tank wins, culminating in 7th place of 40 companies in the national Draper Competition for Collegiate Women Entrepreneurs with their online fitness instruction app, FitYes. She loved it so much that she has wanted to work in the start-up field ever since.
Financial independence continues to be a barrier for women to leave unhealthy relationships and jobs, and by making business ownership more accessible and understandable, we can change one life at a time.
Jacqueline Bell is based an hour north of Austin, TX, where she lives with her husband, 2 dogs, and kitten. She has a passion for entrepreneurship, travel, home-brewing and helping women become financially independent. She is also the business manager for the New England-based film production company “Off Hand Co”.

In my life I have collected a fair share of traumatic experiences, so when I discovered life coaching, I knew I found the right fit. Besides studying for my certification, I had no idea how to even begin making it into a business, but when I met Jacqui, I felt like I was in safe hands. She was genuinely interested in my idea and I felt that she truly wanted me to succeed. The biggest obstacle for me was building my website and business plan -- I was so overwhelmed with everything, but Jacqui made sure to continuously check on my confidence with the business and included me according to my comfort levels. Now I feel ready to put myself out there confidently!
