Wazoku Crowd

Connect with millions of problem solvers

It’s impossible to have all the smartest and most capable people in your industry within your organization.


But this no longer needs to be an issue for your business. A rise in remote working, on-demand employment, and greater networking means there is a world of talent who could help you. Challenge_360 enables you to reach out to connect with any external crowd to innovate for solutions to your most pressing problems or opportunities.

Having an always-on, open talent capability is a huge force multiplier for any organization. It is no wonder that research behemoths like NASA and the UK Ministry of Defence use our Crowd to provide critical value for their toughest challenges.


Crowdsourcing just got easier and more secure

The Wazoku Platform has built-in enterprise security, fully configurable access – with anonymity to help remove bias – and IP agreements for co-creation that ensure you can work together with confidence.


This gives you the freedom to explore opportunities with the crowd that would otherwise not be possible. Our clients have benefited from insights that resulted from crowdsourced Challenges: when the best ideas can truly come from anywhere.
