The Wazoku Innovation Networks (WIN)

Wazoku Innovation Networks (WIN) is a groundbreaking initiative, solving global critical problems that we call Nexus Themes: Climate, Health, Security, and Inclusion. In a world grappling with unprecedented complexities, Open Innovation allows you to approach these Challenges from every possible angle. WIN is the latest way in which Wazoku turns complexity into simplicity.

Rethinking Innovation for a Changing World

WIN is not your typical innovation endeavor. With WIN, we introduce a transformative concept – Nexus Challenges. These Challenges transcend sectors and Nexus Themes, embracing a data-driven, solution-oriented approach. Leveraging our market insights and collective intelligence, Wazoku identifies targeted Nexus Challenge topics, manages the Challenges, and harnesses the power of crowdsourcing to guide them from idea to outcome.

Tackling Complex Nexus Challenges

Nexus Challenges are wider reaching than traditional Open Innovation Challenges. They delve into the heart of interconnected, systemic issues: where climate meets health, security intersects with inclusion, and beyond. These multidimensional Challenges demand multidimensional solutions, provided by Solvers in our global crowd of 700,000+.
