Ideathon™ is a marathon ideation event with a fundraising aspect. A Cross-pollination of idea generation and fundraising. A typical ideathon runs 7-60 days. Ideas are managed via a feature rich collaborative online brainstorming platform that allows anyone to submit solutions and collaborate on ideas which may benefit the host organisation and society. Part idea generation, part team building, part community building, part fund-raising, part awareness building, the ideathon brings together many perspectives and positive elements to make one great event.

Ideas that give :^)
