Why Innovation Weeks™ and Why Now?

In 2010, Bill Gates asked a University of Chicago audience to consider "Whether the brightest minds are working on the most important problems?" He thought the question to be an important one and said, "if we could make it more true, it would make a huge difference."

On this point, we agree with Mr. Gates. We then wondered... "How might we increase the time and energy bright minds give to important problems?" After much research, Oviture™ determined that four main inventions were needed:

  1. A database of the brightest minds (Innovators)
  2. A database of the most important problems (Challenges)
  3. A way to introduce Innovators to Challenges (Events)
  4. A way to connect and reward Innovators (Ecosystem)
