IdeaScreenPlus – Accelerate Innovation

You have lots of great ideas.
But which ones have the best chance of success?
IdeaScreenPlus distills the answers with unrivaled speed and accuracy.

Research suggests it takes an average of 3000 ideas to get to one commercial success

. While many business gurus will point out that this high failure rate is the price of product innovation — what they often miss is how costly it can be. That’s because the traditional process of testing and refining hundreds of ideas each year is both painfully time-consuming and labour-intensive.

IdeaScreenPlus simplifies and streamlines the process of screening early stage ideas, at a fraction of the cost of conventional approaches. By automating iterative testing, it cuts out arduous processes, leaving you with more time to narrow down and refine your most promising ideas.

You can use IdeaScreenPlus with your VC community panels as well as our global panels, and view results that help pinpoint an idea’s strengths or weaknesses and how you can improve it. And with rich visualization tools to sharpen the sorting of respondent data, you’ll spot hot trends faster, and know which ideas are duds early on and which ones are worth pursuing further.

Why Choose IdeaScreenPlus?

Why wait to test? Time is money. Whether you have 5 ideas or 500, IdeaScreenPlus lets you rapidly craft studies and collect respondent feedback in days instead of weeks. Speed up your innovation cycle for a fraction of the cost of conventional testing.
