IdeasNest is a new platform aimed at releasing thousands of potentially ground-breaking products and services held by people who may have no interest in the day to do building of a business. Whatever their reason, they are not attracted to the traditional business incubation services. They do not wish to ‘build an empire;’ rather they have an idea they would like to see taken up and developed. IdeasNest partners extensively with the networks that reach these audiences, capture the ideas through a simple, structured online form, and then provide partner members with a regular digest which delivers a short summary of submissions. Partner members can then choose to apply for more detail about an idea, which gives them a period of exclusivity in which to evaluate the submission in more detail. IdeasNest then allows direct contact between the Partner member and the ideas creator. There are three levels of Partner membership.
