Who we are

HeroX is a crowdsourcing platform that allows anyone in the global community to create a challenge or submit a solution to a posted challenge.

We connect solvers with problems, and we believe that going to the global community can provide richer and broader solutions - beyond what your own network can provide.

Crowdsourcing may seem like a recent trend yet people have been doing it for centuries. Prize challenges have been directly responsible for our ability to navigate the open seas, to preserve food by canning, and they even helped launch the commercial space industry.

Christian Cotichini, XPRIZE's Peter Diamandis, Emily Fowler and impact investor, City Light Capital co-founded HeroX in 2013 to bring challenges and crowdsourcing capabilities to the global community on a more accessible scale. Whether you want to help solve a challenge or post a challenge, HeroX is open to everyone.
