Can you support us to apply the tool in our specific context?

We are open to host dedicated webinars or consult you and your potential business partners when applying the Co-Innovation Builder to your specific collaboration. We are doing this for free for non-profit initiatives, such as we have done a live webinar for the EUvsCrisis Hackathon. Get in touch, then we explore what we can do.

How can I become a co-creator?

The Co-Innovation Builder is a Co-Innovation by itself. This is version 1.0 and we would be happy to get your feedback to further improve for the next version.

In addition, our users have created a LinkedIn Community to exchange experiences when working with the Co-Innovation Builder: https://www.linkedin.com/groups/8948458/
