“The bigger vision is to create an ecosystem for innovation and get more stakeholders on to the platform to make open innovation collaboration a reality. Crowdsourcing is already changing from just calling people to present ideas, to, actually integrating and executing the ideas. Not only that, open innovation and crowdsourcing help in streamlining the multiple facets of competitive intelligence and eventually support decision making. We help provide tools that can process all the data and help innovators ask bigger questions and help them think of bigger questions that can be asked.” – Anup Sahoo, Founder, Ideapoke
“We are the Google for technology information. Our vision is to democratize Innovation and provide it as a service through our platform.” – Sanjay Sahoo, Co-Founder, Ideapoke
