VANCOUVER, CANADA / ACCESSWIRE / April 4, 2019 / With this partnership Inocrowd reaches more than 1,000,000 Solvers, becoming the largest open innovation platform in Europe.

Inocrowd, a platform specialized in providing services to generate ideas and solve problems, creating the perfect bridge between seekers (companies) and solvers (solution provider), joins the leading platform in the USA, HeroX, with the aim of reinforcing its presence in the international market, establishing an exchange of challenges and solvers between the two platforms.

The main advantage of this association is that Inocrowd will now place at the disposal of companies a community of experts who belong to prestigious universities, students, start-ups and spin-offs worldwide.

At this moment, Inocrowd has more than 600,000 solvers from various areas of competence and, with this partnership, will exceed the 1,000,000 solvers as well as it will register an exponential increase of the international challenges of the largest American and European companies, such as NASA, General Electric, Lockheed Martin, Deutche Telecom, Volkswagen Group, Bosch, among others, available through these two platforms.

Soraya Gadit, Inocrowd’s founder and CEO, explains the importance of this partnership:

“The partnership between the two companies consists in an exchange of challenges where both Inocrowd and HeroX can publish each others challenges. This connection to the leading US platform allows Inocrowd to further increase the base of solvers and give Portuguese researchers the opportunity to access challenges from companies such as NASA and Lockheed Martin.”

To conclude, Soraya Gadit adds:

“The aim of Inocrowd is also to help solve problems of access to food and drinking water in underdeveloped countries and find more effective therapies for diseases such as malaria, tuberculosis and breast cancer, goals common with HeroX.”

The association of the Portuguese platform with HeroX represents an incredible advance in the international market, being now considered the best open innovation platform in Europe.

HeroX has solved some NASA challenges for example: to design a new airspace and concept of operations to allow the air vehicles of 2035, including autonomous vehicles, to safely and efficiently participate in traffic space, another successfully challenge solved by Hero X was to source a system that routes and collects human waste away from the body , hands-free, for fully suited astronauts.
