All authorized users can create ideas within the framework of an idea campaign. Trends, technologies and inspirations are used in the campaign as the basis for familiarizing the users with the conceptual formulation of the campaign and encourage the creativity of the users. Users can comment on, discuss and assess (in accordance with simple criteria) existing campaign ideas. This first feedback loop supports the development and materialization of ideas through to the elaboration of concepts for products, services or business models.
