The power of the crowd can tackle any problem or opportunity

We believe in the innate ability of humans, supported by the right technology, to solve any problem or know others that can.

“Harnessing crowd creativity is a powerful tool to address the complex challenges we face today. Migrating our Climate CoLab community into Wazoku’s global crowd of problem solvers can accelerate the development of solutions that will make for a greener, more sustainable future”

Thomas W. Malone
founding director of the CCI who serves as the Patrick J. McGovern (1959) Professor of Management

Transforming the world of work

We’re the world’s first open talent crowd to receive the prestigious accreditation from the Center for Transformation of Work (CTW). That means that the CTW believes we are leading the charge for their strategic aims to transform the world of work for 1 billion people by 2025.

“Our global clients are increasingly interested in the issue of climate change. We’re excited to bring Climate CoLab’s members into our growing Challenge Community. This migration will give our customers and community access to Climate CoLab’s dedicated and skilled members, who have a proven track record of developing creative and actionable solutions. Between us, we have built two incredible superminds—large online communities that have achieved amazing things to help our world. I’m looking forward to what we can do together.”
