Our mission: Connecting Sparks of Genius
What is innosabi?
At innosabi we pursue our shared vision of uniting the best ideas and brightest minds. Of connecting sparks of genius. How do we do it? By building the digital infrastructure to bring them together.
Why is innosabi special?
We want to actively shape the future as pioneers and thought leaders. Not only with our technology but by living and practicing the mindset and principles we believe in. This is the unique innosabi spirit that makes us special.
During that time we first-handedly refined innovation methods and developed new ones. We learned how to reach thousands of people all over the world in a couple of minutes and condense their input into actionable insights. We learned how to ask the right questions to get to the core of consumer needs and expectations. And of course, we learned how to iteratively form ideas into real product concepts.
We took all the learnings and methods and started to build our own innovation community. Instead of passing on the ideas and insights from end-users to our clients, we started to put them into direct contact. We started to build our first online innovation platform unserAller.de and began to offer projects on it.
Gradually, more and more users joint the community and participated in massively successful projects like the co-creation of new nail polish for Manhattan or the design of interior concepts for Ford. We provided innovation projects as a service. And unserAller grew to become the largest co-creation community for consumer goods in Germany with over 20.000 active users. It even got us a price for the most innovative IT startup in Germany and quite a bit of attention in the press. Good times!
We continuously improved the unserAller platform and developed new features or project formats. Until it became clearer and clearer that there was no comparable technology out there. That we did not only offer Germany’s largest co-creation community but – more importantly – a perfectly tailored software tool.
So why not white-label it and enable companies to build their very own communities? That’s when we left the project business and became a real software-as-a-service company. It was a step that was as hard as it was significant. But eventually, once we sold our first long-term platform licenses, it kick-started the growth of innosabi at exponential rates.
This meant two things for us. First, we intensified our pursuit of becoming thought leaders in the realm of innovation and digitalization. We shared our vision in talks and keynotes, we wrote and published our first book, and we were even invited to discuss the digital future of Germany with the chancellor. Secondly, we evolved our software and methods towards what they are today.
We moved beyond the original idea of customer co-creation platforms and applied the principles to other areas. Whether it is collaboration within organizations or joint innovation activities with suppliers: We created the tools and methods to engage all relevant stakeholders. In doing so, innosabi eventually could offer much more than the community platforms we developed at the early stages of our software business.
We are endlessly curious about the future. Especially all the possibilities that new technologies and current developments bring with them. We want to keep on pioneering and finding new ways to use them for enabling innovation.
We are working with Artificial Intelligence and machine learning to gain even more insights from the data on our platforms. We are building a network of specialized communities to be accessed on demand via our software. There is not enough space here to mention all the other great advancements we are making. It is a truly exciting time for us and we try to once again remain flexible and keep an open mind. The next big chapter-defining step is surely coming.
Over the years our software helped shape innovation across all industries: From banking apps and chemical processes to gummy bears and sex toys.

innosabi is so amazing that an intern actually described his stay here as the ``most exciting week of my life``.
