How it Works

2 Login or register to see the full details of the Challenge and open a Project Room. You will also need to accept the Challenge Specific Agreement (CSA) and our Terms of Use. Find out more about CSAs and Project Rooms here.
3 Develop your solution. The required deliverables will be specified in the Challenge description and can range from written proposals to prototypes. If you have any questions, you can message the InnoCentive team via your Project Room.
4 Submit your solution before the Challenge deadline. Only InnoCentive and the Seeker for that Challenge can view your solution.

Once this stage is completed, you will be notified via email as to whether or not your submission has been selected for an award. For Theoretical and RTP Challenges, you will also receive feedback on your submission from the Seeker.
