Background


Whether it’s 99 Problems or First World Problems, the bottom line is: People have problems and not enough ways to solve them. Not enough time, not enough money, not enough minds. And that’s where TopCoder comes in…

 

TopCoder is a lot like Tongal, but for software development and digital creation.

 

     •  TopCoder is an online community of hundreds of thousands software developers, algorithsmists, and digital designers.

 

     •  TopCoder hosts specific online competitions that produce and deliver the best digital solutions for their Global 1000 and Government Agency clients.

 

     •  TopCoder oversees the entire process from Idea conceptualization through software development and asset maintenance (like bug fixes).

 

So, what is EOI? TopCoder’s “Enterprise Open Innovation” (EOI) is the evolution of crowd sourcing. Basically, a company comes to TopCoder with a problem. Then TopCoder launches a competition that engages their community of almost a half million people from around the world – highly talented individuals with global perspectives, varied skill sets, and unique life experiences – to come up with better solutions than, let’s say, a handful of that company’s executives sitting in a boardroom. In terms of the age-old adage, if 2 heads are better than 1, then hundreds of thousands of heads are definitely better than 1. 

 

Which is where YOU come in: TopCoder wants you to create a video that emphasizes the power in the multiplication of the individual and helps companies better understand EOI.
