Kickstarter is a great platform for raising money and supporting ideas. Platforms like Innocentive are great at creating challenges and getting a community of smart people to submit their ideas to solve those challenges and win big prizes.
What if you combined the two concepts into a platform where people could fund a challenge that they hoped would inspire the best minds to come compete.
For instance, you might not find the right and best ‘build a new 3D print-able prosthetic arm’ project on Kickstarter. You also might not see anyone individual or company that has funded that challenge on Innocentive. What if you could create a project to fund a challenge to get people to compete to build the best 3D print-able arm.
Seems like a great way to inspire great challenges, and great solutions. Anyone register KickCentive.com yet?
