We believe in the power of open innovation, bringing together creative minds to create breakthrough solutions that touch every human life.
Founded in 2001, InnoCentive connects companies, academic institutions, and non-profit organizations, all hungry for breakthrough innovation, with a global network of more than 125,000 of the world's brightest minds on the world's first Open Innovation Marketplace.
These creative thinkers -- engineers, scientists, inventors, and business people with expertise in life sciences, engineering, chemistry, math, computer science, and entrepreneurship -- join the InnoCentive Solver community to solve some of the world's toughest challenges.
Seeker organizations post their challenges on the InnoCentive web site, and offer registered Solvers significant financial awards for the best solutions. Seeker and Solver identities are kept completely confidential and secure, and InnoCentive manages the entire IP process.
