InnoCentive, Inc. Key Developments
InnoCentive and Strategos Form Strategic Alliance
Jun 25 14
InnoCentive Inc. and Strategos announced a strategic alliance that will provide clients with a strategic and systemic crowd sourced innovation solution designed to develop breakthrough strategies, drive top line growth and embed innovation capability within the enterprise. By integrating InnoCentive's prize-based innovation solutions with Strategos' rigorous and proven strategic innovation methodologies, clients will be able to leverage large communities of people (crowdsourcing) to bring new expertise and diverse perspectives to bear on critical strategic questions and growth challenges. Within many commercial enterprises, the current innovation capabilities, pipelines, and portfolios are insufficient to drive growth and sustain category leadership. Crowd sourced innovation aims to alleviate these pressures -- as an augmentation and accelerant to existing internal innovation efforts -- by enabling companies to harness diverse and global communities of knowledge and talent for the purpose of increasing problem solving capacity, improving business performance, and fundamentally changing the economics of innovation.

By crowdsourcing these education problems to a global community of more than 285,000 diverse problem solvers, Lumina Foundation seeks to leverage innovative new methods and harness the world's creative talent to achieve its goal of increasing postsecondary degree attainment in America. Many factors are contributing to the need to increase attainment, including the increasing complexity of society, the growing role that information and information technology play in people's lives, and the fact that people from different countries and cultures live and work together more than ever.
