OpenIDEO Ideation Tools


Check out the following 4 tools to jumpstart your ideation!


1.   Twist What Exists  Let's remix and re-contextualize, invert and iterate, extend and expand existing intiatives towards new horizons for increased impact.

2.   Connect New Dots  How might a costume designer, a NASCAR driver or others seemingly unrelated to the disease contribute to the conversation? Connecting nontraditional spaces and people might yield exciting innovations.

3.   Dig In & Build Up  Get your hands dirty! Get out there and start creating, prototyping and innovating. Find friends, partners, teammates, and put your heads together for increased impact.

4.   Dream Big  Get crazy! Don't be afraid to throw out ideas of all shapes, sizes, colors and contexts  anything goes in the name of the brainstorm game.
