Today’s Game Changer Spotlight: Innocentive

What: An “open innovation community” founded in 2001, Innocentive applied theories of crowdsourcing and “the wisdom of the crowd” to re-invent how pharmaceutical and other science-based companies acquire and pay for basic research. Innocentive connects “seekers” and “solvers.” The seekers – companies with specific research needs – broadcast their needs to a global network of solvers. Some are chemists with traditional pedigrees. Some are talented citizen scientists. Individual solvers earn cash for their work. Now Innocentive has teamed with SAP to expand the concept to computer science and IT research.
