The idea of the concept is to create a public platform where companies can post their innovations that contribute to the world benefit and where the society can see what companies are doing worldwide. It was created during McGill OpenIDEO hackathon.
The idea of the concept is to create a public platform where small and large companies will be able to upload their innovation stories that contribute to the world benefit and where the society can see what companies are doing worldwide. The main challenges would be to stimulate companies to post their projects and users to access and participate in order to stimulate more companies to contribute to the world benefit. However, we could certainly overcome these difficulties with the support of a celebrity. Additionally, the platform can include crowdsourcing. The public will decide on which initiatives are most important to their communities. This way, the initiatives are more relevant to the public as the decision making is decentralized, and some of the cost of development and implementation can be removed from the for-profit sector. Given that the companies are active in social responsibility anyway, the platform will indicate which initiatives will have the most impact. This will provide a platform where public and private sector interests converge and will ensure long term sustainability of the concept. Crowdsourcing also means that the emphasis will be placed on the communities and social good, but not on any centralized organization.
