Coming soon: State of Open Innovation 2020

Coming soon: State of Open Innovation 2020

In 2018, our landmark State of Open Innovation survey asked leaders in nearly 100 private sector, government, and nonprofit organizations to share how they are using open innovation — from co-creation, participatory design, and crowdsourcing to prize competitions, hackathons, and accelerators — in pursuit of new approaches to complex problems.

This year, we plan to conduct the survey again. In addition to updated data and trend analysis, the State of Open Innovation 2020 will also include a new section on accelerators.

If you oversee open innovation initiatives inside an organization or know someone who does, you won’t want to miss the chance to participate.
