2. curated crowdsourcing

Let’s be honest. Consumers have a hard time evaluating new ideas and innovation. When you test a new concept in a group of people, chances are that they will go for what they know, not for what they don’t know. When it’s about innovation and daring to change, a company needs to be in the driver’s seat. Normal consumer research packages, therefore, are not the right tools to assess innovative ideas.

The right step to take, is to work with empowered consumers.

Addictlab’s  database of creative thinkers is a valuable resource for conceptual thinking (new ideas), executional power (feasibility), but also as a source for consumer


For projects needing consumer insights and innovation assessment, we are bringing together a number of creative thinkers, out of their normal professional environment, but around a theme and problem they care about and have a personal interest in. These people are open for innovation, can help generate ideas, and evaluate or optimize proposed concepts.
