Tune into this interview between Jeffrey Hayzlett, C-Suite Radio Host and HeroX CEO, Christian Cotichini to learn about why crowdsourcing is like a magnet, and why it’s critical to have a culture of innovation.
It is common knowledge that large legacy companies are often inefficient in creating new products and services. This doesn’t mean, however, that they should not ever aspire to innovate like nimble startups.
Over the past decade, crowdsourcing has become a popular open innovation tool helping organizations solve their biggest problems. While the adoption of crowdsourcing hasn’t been easy; one thing is clear: it is here to stay, and in this article, I attempt to predict what it’ll look like in 10 years.

We partnered with HeroX for a joint bid to respond to a government request for proposal. Our experience with the HeroX team was extremely positive.
There were times where flexibility was critical, their team took the approach of a true partnership. Working against tight timelines, collaborating virtually, operating in different time zones; any one of these points could have created challenges, not for this team. HeroX went the extra mile, which is a rarity for us in our past experiences in collaborating with other partners. The responsive, professionalism and level of expertise was noted and appreciated.
Other than their capabilities, we were impressed by their overall team in the way they conducted themselves. There was true core values alignment. We would absolutely invite the opportunity to work with their team again.
