I believe OpenIDEO is another tool which can help fight this pandemic. It has made possible for people present in various parts of the world to come together and work on a single problem, offer their viewpoints, share resources, form groups and connect with each other with only one clear goal: betterment of the society. 

This platform creates a Medici Effect where participants are either teachers, engineers, doctors, musicians, physician and various other disciplines who share knowledge and OpenIDEO leverages the strength of this collaborative approach to create something big and innovative.

What is the need are you focusing on?

Companies are constantly trying to find new ways to fight this pandemic but they are still short of ideas. So this one focuses on generating ideas and ways about how might an organization can fight the pandemic.

What is the best example of business adaption you’ve seen in response to COVID-19?

MindSumo is another example similar to OpenIDEO. MindSumo is an online platform where companies post different business problems and through your imagination and creative approach people post a variety of approaches and solution to the business problem.
