Expand revenu Source<br />If I were running this business I would try to develop it in different languages in order to let more people access to this precious innovation which is online R&D for everyone by everyone. I would also implement more adds to allow more seekers and solvers to join the private circle of “mankind helpers”. Ads can be a group on facebook or other social networks. Then I would try to create more partnerships with nonprofit organization and even real companies. Those partnerships could bring more money to help solvers for very important new innovations. <br />
