Presenting: Open Innovation - Harnessing the Power of the Crowd - 8 Mar 2016, 08:55

Orange’s innovation story is one of entrepreneurship, collaboration and placing the consumer’s needs at the heart of product design. 'Imagine With Orange' is an open innovation platform, open to anyone, developed to capture and understand trends, insights and ideas about the digital world that go above and beyond Silicon Valley. Fuelled mainly by normal people and tech-start ups, this engine gives them a platform on which to help create technologies that answer real-world problems and support our environment and our needs.

This session will cover:

  • 'Imagine' with Orange - sharing ideas to reinvent the digital experience
  • Leveraging the power of the crowd for innovation
  • Exploring the 3 levels of co-creation: user centric design, platforms and the collaborative economy
  • Understanding ‘Imagine with Orange’ - the incentives, the model and the vision
  • Supporting tech-start ups with little budget to realise their goal
  • Leveraging ‘Imagine’ by other brands to support their crowd-innovation campaigns
  • Supporting the cross-pollination of ideas and innovation
