Ideas Project

Democratized innovation and idea crowdsourcing

About the project Edit

IdeasProject is an online community for everybody from all around the world to brainstorm. It enables the two-way exchange of ideas between users and developers around innovation powered by Nokia.

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

The key principle of IdeasProject is based on the premise that users that innovate can develop exactly what they want, rather than relying on manufacturers to act as their, often very imperfect, agents. Moreover, individual users do not have to develop everything they need on their own: they can benefit from innovations developed and freely shared by others, which leads to open innovation.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

IdeasProject is focused on the crowdsourcing of ideas and challenges. Anybody can participate, providing insights and entrepeneurial hints. The platform may generate social outcomes if and when the ideas and challenges are geared towards social goodwill (some of the ideas and challenges may remain strictly technological, with a natural bias towards smartphones, due to the role played by Nokia, sponsor of the platform).

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

IdeasProject is a dematerialized platform. Therefore, its outreach is intrinsically global.

What was the triggering factor of this project? Edit

At IdeasProject, ideas do not expire or get "old." That’s because an idea may be presented before the market is ready, and user acceptance or technology simply has to catch up. For these cases, IdeasProject plays the role of a treasury for ideas.

What is the business model of this project? Edit

People own the ideas they share, as well as any other written contributions including comments.
By participating into IdeasProject, people are also inviting all who participate, including Nokia, the company behind the platform, to utilize their idea. If people are interested to patent their ideas together with Nokia, with monetary compensation, they can have access to a specific service at :
