We’re constantly inspired by the ideas coming out of our challenges. The creativity, time and collaboration that goes into them is something we want to do a better job of recognizing. This time – for the Higher Ed Challenge – we’re experimenting with how OpenIDEO is best positioned to take ideas to the next level.

We’re creating a network of accelerators and implementing organizations that we’ll activate throughout the Higher Ed Challenge. During the Ideas and Refinement Phases we’ll be selecting promising ideas for a Demo Day that will put your idea in front of those best positioned to help you take it to the next level. Your idea will get feedback from experts and certain ideas may be invited to skip a step in the application processes of accelerators participating in the Demo Day.

Our hope is that this will give ideas the chance to come to life in a more powerful and impactful way.

Implementation and Acceleration Partners Include:

4.0 Schools

Learn Launch

Startup Next

Unreasonable Institute

Great open door for understudies to attempt their aptitudes and persistence. Anyway, such extraordinary activity could be wrecked by utilizing such administrations and duping. Anyway, I am disturbed in light of the fact that I've missed for this present year challenge so I would gladly go along with it one year from now. Expectation my secondary school classes won't be an issue.

Thanks for good sharing ideas as well as I am education consultant at and i would like to say that advanced education makes the students to compose and read scholastically from the foundations. The foundation benefits for some reasons, strikingly that this approach energizes, if not obliges, divisions to procure insightful employees who cherish talking about books more than they adore careerist strategizing.
