Good ideas are all around us.

In a world of distributed knowledge open innovation gives you the power of the crowd to work together on ideas and improve your products, processes or services.

CROWD LYNX helps you to implement open innovation by providing the tools and an intuitive unified process to ask your crowd for ideas and bring them to life.


Some ideas appear spontaneously, some can be triggered by the right question. CROWD LYNX provides both, the option to call for ideas on a certain topic as well as the permanent channel to post ideas proactively and dedicate ideas to a specific addressee.

It is all about efficient communication these days. CROWD LYNX supports the most direct communication paths between people having ideas and those who are interested to hear them and put the best ones into reality.


CROWD LYNX can play a major role in building up and enhancing an active culture of innovation in any crowd of people. Based on principles such as collaborative fairness, balanced motivation and unobstructed communication CROWD LYN aims at generating a participative environment of Innovation.
