Ideation is a platform to develop your idea by sharing it with a community  of innovators. It has two parts: Idea and Idea Challenge.

 

Ideas are potential businesses, though they can be any kind of groundbreaking solutions. When an idea flashes your mind, you can describe it by using the Float an Idea button on Idea Junction. The Idea Creation form will help turn your thoughts into words. These Ideas can then be developed into full fledged business plans. You can invite co-authors, collaborate with them and develop new versions. You can also create a crowdfunding campaign or approach investors with the link to your idea.

Idea Challenge is idea competition. Suppose a company is looking for a solution to a problem that they are facing and they are unable to find a solution towards solving it, they can create an Idea Challenge  and source solutions. Idea provider can charge them or Idea Challenge Owners can reward the best solution that they go ahead with.
