A platform where people create their private think tank teams comprised of independent ideators, who are paid retainer fees to remain available for solving any challenge the client may have.
Build your own dream team of ideators to help you come up with solutions to problems, no matter what they might be. Life is easier if you have a team that always finds a way.
A way for independent ideators to make a living.
An online extension of your research & development team.
Hire ideators as you would any other consultants.
While this idea could be implemented as an independent online platform, it could also be a feature of Brainstorming.com. It's a variant of this idea only done online and without a middleman/agency. Anyone could assemble their own problem-solving dream team (think tank). The team creator pays every ideator a monthly retainer fee and thereby keeps them available and engaged in every challenge that is presented to them.
The concept boils down to:
A way for ideators to demonstrate their exceptional abilities. A portfolio of their original ideas. This helps clients find suitable ideators. It also helps ideators justify their retainer fees.
An online platform where ideators can remotely collaborate on solving their client's problems.
A feature that let's anyone create private (or public) think tanks and invite specific ideators to join. To keep the ideators active and engaged, everyone on the team is paid a retainer fee for the duration their services are needed.
An escrow service that holds the funds and ensures that everyone does what they agreed to do.
While private think tank groups have always been planned for the Brainstorming platform, paying ideators retainer fees to keep them actively engaged on the team is new. Thanks to Spook Louw and Michaela D for making the pieces click into place. We are definitely building this.
