Need Ideas and In-Depth Discussion?
Sponsor an Idea Rally®
Are you interested in emerging thoughts and Ideas focused on your key R&D interests?
Sponsor your own Idea Rally® and receive hundreds of ideas and in-depth discussion.
It is like going to a conference where you have 200 experts that you can talk with while you direct the conversation to focus on your needs.
IdeaConnection has access to thousands of experts and professionals in multiple disciplines that are eager to lend their knowledge and expertise to your discussion. Watch video below.
You can ask us to find participants with very specific credentials and experience. You can also invite your own experts to participate. Further participants are attracted through an international online media campaign. Your company name can remain confidential if desired.
To inspire participants, you offer awards for participation and contributions each day, and also provide a significant award at the end of the Rally to the member who provided the most valuable ideas and input. You, of course, determine the amount of the awards.
All participants sign an online form agreeing not to post any confidential information.
An Idea Rally® generally lasts for one week, and members of your company can participate in the discussion, highlighting ideas that you would like explored further.
All discussion is in text. Ideas can be voted up or down. Ideas can be moved to particular strings, or particular themes.
IdeaConnection supplies a moderator who deletes spam and off topic ideas and discussions, and who acts as a catalyst to further in-depth discussion around interesting ideas.
The Rally is confidential, and is only seen by people who have registered and been accepted.
At the end of the Rally, you will receive a Word document containing all the ideas and discussion.
Contact us today for information on how you can benefit from sponsoring an Idea Rally® of your own.
Idea Rallies Yield Breakthrough Thinking
IdeaConnection develops a new model of open innovation to generate breakthrough thinking and solve problems. Crowdsourcing is a powerful engine that can fuel better problem solving, faster innovation, and novel thinking. It is defined as “the practice of obtaining needed services, ideas, or content by soliciting contributions from a large group of people and especially from the online community rather than from traditional employees or suppliers.”
