Open Innovation From A Practitioner's Perspective


Google’s Project 10 to the 100

All in all, I think it’s a good idea. They presented a very simple framework for what they are looking for and how to submit your idea. I’m a little worried about how the finalists are chosen (why not open it up to the general public to vote?), and it’s not clear at all what they will do with the idea (other than fund it). Maybe they could take an approach similar to the Vine Project (which I talk about in a earlier blog) and open up the finalists to a round of open submissions where there’s another open call for people to contribute ideas to help those finalists reach the next round. The other interesting thing is that this project is not about a specific challenge (such as the Lunar X-Prize) but rather a call to identify those problems (and solutions) that can change the world.

I submitted an idea to the project website.
