Why open innovation?

Open innovation is a collaborative approach to problem-solving that taps into the collective intelligence of a wide range of individuals. Submissions can include ideas about specific challenges or opportunities, proposals from startups and inventors, and input directly from customers.

As a technique, open innovation has gained popularity because it generates ideas from many different perspectives. When done effectively, open innovation cultivates strong relationships with expert and problem-solver communities. With outside-in startup scouting, it creates effective channels for startups to submit competitive solutions.
