Company / App Name: Project Society
What does it do?
Project Society is a platform for incentivizing and distributing crowdsourced innovation. On it, members gather information, propose ideas, and develop open-source solutions.
Why do we need it?
Innovation needs disruption. Currently, it is a top-down paradigm with governments and corporations determining what gets R&D attention. Project Society is going to reverse the paradigm with a bottom-up crowdsourced approach.
Who is it for?
Society will benefit, but Project Society is targeted towards developers, scientists, and engineers. It is a platform that allows these groups to collaborate, ideate, and solve hard problems.
What makes it stand out from the crowd?
The only similar product I have encountered is Innocentive which broadcasts problems to their network of solvers and rewards bounties for solutions. Project Society is different because it is collaborative and the solutions are open-source.
Growing the content and onboarding developers, engineers, and scientists.
