Are you a business owner, product designer, production line manager or even a creative workshop owner? Are you or your business facing technical challenges that affect the productivity and scalability of your business? Are you facing challenges in manufacturing or even connecting your business model to the social impact it yields? Do you represent a development organization looking for innovative solutions to social challenges or alternative, more effective ways to achieve its goals and support its journey in social change? We offer you an opportunity to turn the challenges facing your business, organization, project, craft or local industry into new opportunities for growth and business innovation.
This workshop is implemented by Tech Tribes in partnership with the Arab World’s first open innovation and crowdsolving platform, Yomken.com.
Explore the Power of Crowdsolving
CrowdSolving, sometimes referred to as “Open-Innovation”, is a process to make R&D affordable by getting solutions and innovations from the crowd of innovators, researchers and experts to overcome industrial, environmental and societal challenges. These innovative solutions and innovations aim to efficiently introduce new technologies and products to the market. In Yomken.com we provide Crowdsolving through a platform for local and multinational businesses, NGOs, governmental organizations, and others where they can post the challenges they face. They are then matched with creative solutions and ideas provided by the crowd and Yomken.com network of innovators.
Tech Tribes and Yomken scout for people and businesses who contribute to social and economic impact and through a unique challenge identification model helps them identify technical challenges. In this context, a challenge is a well-defined problem for which your organization needs a solution. It should be specific, well-researched and calls for a measurable solution. A challenge can be used for ideas generation, finding solutions to complex technical problems, prototyping requests, conducting market studies and seeking solutions for societal and environmental problems with high impact.
Following the Yomken Model, tools presented at the workshop would help participants turn the challenges they identify into creative new opportunities for business growth. By using Yomkon.com participatory innovation mode, we open the door for Arab innovators to provide solutions to these challenges and bring organizations and industries to higher productivity and better quality, and thus higher social and economic impact.
This interactive workshop will help participants identify a set of specific challenges that they then can take back to their R&D departments to further research or submit to innovators via the Yomken.com platform.
