The team at WINN passionately believes that Great Things Happen When People Get Together - even online!
Worcestershire Innovation (WINN) has continued its conversations and idea sharing with local innovators and businesses during the coronavirus pandemic and a break in its popular events programme and has been delighted to ‘pilot’ the Innovation Platform.
The platform supports crowd innovation and means that it can join the WINN community online - 24/7.
Individuals can sign up to the platform, set up a profile, develop a business profile, begin conversations and respond to challenges.
The aim is to ensure that innovation is ongoing across the county, and it hopes that the platform will bring people together in a completely new way.
Conversations can be held publicly with all members able to comment, or privacy settings can be added to protect an idea.
New areas of the platform have been added recently including:
- 'Ask' which gives the option to pose questions to WINN's specialist advisors and
- 'Search & Find' which allows users to search through a wealth of useful information, business support and top tips from specialist advisors.
More additions are planned and feedback from users will be incredibly important to develop the platform to meet the WINN communities needs.
