Crowdsourcing with Diversity In Mind

Your innovation partners are more than just a number

A measure of your potential for innovation success may have been described to you as highly dependent on the number of people inside of a “community.” Well the truth is what’s most important in having a good breadth of solutions… is the diversity of the participant pool. Diversity across a number of areas including, race, gender, industry, location, occupation and more can not only bring unimaginable solutions to the table, but can also provide you insight that may shape your product, process, or even partner roadmaps for a win.

We make diversity a critical piece of open innovation, not an afterthought or defacto result

Our Brilliance Participant Pool Method gathers the data on who’s providing you solutions, can ensure you have a broad spectrum of participation, and after you’ve awarded your solutions, can provide you the insight that may shape your next strategic move

Professional Services

Whether innovation strategy development, additional or managed services to support innovation challenge delivery, execution of pilot or ongoing programs, or other needs supporting the scale-up of your innovation and engagement efforts…we’re likely able to help…let’s talk about what’s possible with the Floor23 platform and our services.
