We have gathered the most frequently asked questions for you.
Far too many ideas remain being only ideas because they lack key competencies or resources that together can drive the idea forward. At Bay of Ideas, you post your idea so that more people can join the idea and develop it into something more than just an idea. The more people who see your idea, the greater the probability that the right people are attracted to your idea and want to develop it with you!
Your idea is presented partly in a public format that everyone can see, even those who are not logged in to the platform, and in a private format only for those who are connected to the idea.
You decide how much or how little you want to write about your idea, both what is visible to the public or more privately to those who are connected to your idea. You are free to edit the visibility of the idea, who is allowed to be connected to it, or the content at any time.
Absolutely not, most ideas are not unique (that is good!) and that is why you should not hesitate to post your idea. It could be about such traditional things as opening a restaurant or starting a hair salon together with others, just as it can be developing a tool or something crazy futuristic.
It is entirely up to you! You can present your idea in its simplest form, or in a more in-depth description. We make it easy to present your idea no matter how far you have come and you can supplement with more information at any time.
Your idea becomes more visible to others, which means that you can attract more people who want to connect to your idea. This gives a greater probability that the right people are attracted to your idea, which can then be developed into something more than just an idea.
Absolutely! We recommend that you spread your idea wherever possible. You can also share other peoples ideas that you find interesting. To connect to an idea and interact with others on the platform, you do need to register.
Although everyone can apply to join your idea, it is you who decides who gets connected and can take part in more in-depth information. We recommend that you first connect with the person that you want to talk more with for a broader insight into who the person is, before you accept that he or she connects to your idea.
You are very welcome to join the Bay of Ideas even if you have no ideas you would like to post. Maybe you are more curious about other peoples ideas where you feel that you can contribute with your key competencies instead?
You decide for yourself and agree on this with your new Bay of Ideas contacts. Most people who start developing an idea do so in their spare time, outside work hours of their main job. But there are no rules to follow, spend as much time as it feels fun and right.
We have limited the number of ideas to 3 created per day.
There is no limit to how many ideas you can join, but keep in mind that joining too many can give the wrong impression.
Basically, there is no one who "owns" an idea, but all material uploaded under the idea is still owned by you. You decide what you want to show and to whom. In the end, it will be like any other partnership. Bay of Ideas is a neutral third party whom will never demand ownership or partnership with the person who submits their idea on the platform.
Since many ideas result in starting a joint venture with others, it is necessary to be of legal age.
