  • 2. Sharing is the new norm. Many companies do not yet get this and many others struggle on how to make it work, but there is no way around sharing and collaboration when it comes to innovation. This will help bring out better innovation faster and as such this helps the overall society.

With InnoCentive and my second product, the research to prototype took two months.” Mark Bent, CEO, Sun Night Solar
  • 12. Design, build and sell awesome products together.
  • 13. Is the real business model facilitation? 1. Develop a community 2. Make it work in chosen area (vehicles) 3. Move into other industries (complex mechanical devices) This can work for startups. What about bigger companies? A way for new business areas?

  • 15. Similarities: The real work happens behind the scenes (back- end, execution more important than ideas) Same issues on innovation management (executives, culture, int+ext, communication) Challenge-driven innovation works for everyone Future winners innovate through communities
