We all know crowdsourcing works - but rarely does it work so well as was the case with Space Poop. So what made it different? HeroX took a long look at this challenge. What we learned might just help other crowdsourcing projects enjoy a little bit of that same “magic.”
We've successfully collaborated winning and fulfilling on NASA contracts through their Center of Excellence for Collaborative Innovation. HeroX is positioned as the social network for innovation and therefore has a broader and more uncredentialed crowd, which pairs well with our Topcoder crowd of experts in development and design. Their team is great to work with, we've had the pleasure of hosting webinars and other joint initiatives.
