Ideas

The Ideation phase for the Design with Grind Challenge has concluded. Please stay tuned as we review your proposals. 

We want to hear what you can do with Nike Grind materials. 

The Ideation phase is more than just a call for proposals. At OpenIDEO, we believe that new and existing ideas become better through collaboration, transparent feedback, and iteration. Participants are encouraged to build off of others' concepts, collaboratively share insights, and combine ideas to reach innovative new places. 

For those who don’t wish to share their ideas publicly, there is an alternative “private submission” channel – please click here to access the private channel.

If you would like to receive Challenge updates, inspiration, and reminders, sign up for our email list
