  • Such a privat idea can be created by everyone. But the idea is limited to the person himself. He may invite others to become members of the team, but the idea remains visible for him and his team members.
  • The idea can then be upgraded to a public idea. A public idea has an own page on the InnoBors where it appears. The community can "vote up" and "add comments" to ideas being on the "public InnoBors". However, no investments can be made from the community. The idea will not go through the approved scorecard process, and will thus not be able to be amongst the "noted ideas" and "no scorecards". The notation of an idea costs 300 € (~2.500,00 NOK)


  • The highest level of an idea is the status of a "listed idea". A listed idea is a candidate for the Rising Star Award of Movation, and will be introduced on the main listing at the InnoBors. The idea owners will be invited for a scoring session, where a detailed analysis of the proposed idea is being performed by experts in the field. The scoring process costs 3000 € (~25.000 NOK).
