Quirky is a company that makes invention accessible by bringing new product ideas to life through its online collaborative platform. Our global community works with us in every aspect of product creation — from ideation, design, naming, marketing, right on through to sales. Learn more about How Quirky Works.
A Quirky Invention Challenge asks the community to focus their creative energy on submitting ideas for one particular topic. Topics may include a specific product category, innovation, holiday, market, or technology. Sometimes we partner with brands, such as The Home Depot, General Electric, and Real Simple, and sometimes we think them up all on our own!
When we issue an Invention Challenge, we're basically giving you a big ol’ hint about what we’re interested in exploring. It stands to reason that we’ll be looking at submissions to Invention Challenges with an extra careful eye.
Invention Challenge submissions are treated just like any other idea submission. Brush up on our policy right here.
Yes, please! But should you forget, we'll always run an archive search to find ideas that may have already been submitted.
Every Thursday, we gather a group of industry experts, friends, and community members at our headquarters in New York. Watch and participate live on Quirky.com/live as we debate the best ideas submitted that week. Before the night is over, we'll crown the next Quirky inventors.
