This Challenge is looking for new methods of hair root removal.

This is an Ideation Challenge that has the following distinct features:

  1. There is a guaranteed award of $5,000, which will be paid to the best submission. Additional awards of $3,000 and $2,000 may be made for the next two best submissions. This means that your submission does not necessarily need to be perfect for you to win the award - it just needs to be better than others.
  2. You are not required to transfer exclusive intellectual property rights to the Seeker. Rather, by submitting your proposal, you grant the Seeker a royalty-free, perpetual, non-exclusive license to practice your idea submitted for this challenge.

What is an InnoCentive Ideation™ Challenge?

An InnoCentive Ideation™ Challenge is a broad question formulated to obtain access to new ideas, similar to a global brainstorm for producing a breakthrough idea or market survey which may include ideas for a new product line, a new commercial application for a current product, or even a viral marketing idea to recruit new customers. Ideation™ Challenge submissions are typically about two written pages, and Seekers receive a non-exclusive, perpetual license to use all submissions.

In an Ideation™ Challenge, Solvers may:

  • Submit ideas of their own
  • Submit third party information that they have the right to use and further the authority to convey that right and the right to use and develop derivative works to Seekers
  • Submit information considered in the public domain without any limitations on use

Solvers should not reveal any confidential information in their submissions. Often the Ideation™ Challenge will be followed by one or more of the other three Challenge types to further develop the ideas and gain Intellectual Property protection when the concept has been well-defined.
