ideas4all Innovation was born in 2008 with the primary objective of becoming a tool for the democratization of idea generation, creativity and open innovation through the collective participation of anyone who wants to share an idea. We began by developing our open platform ideas4all.com, which today is the largest open repository of ideas in the world.

We are firmly committed to the digital transformation and open, transparent and democratic innovation, where everyone makes a contribution within a fertile context of collective collaboration. And above all, we believe in ideas.
We enjoy what we do.
We have the privilege of enjoying ourselves as much as humanly possible, and we take full advantage of that every single day. We always keep a positive, collaborative and optimistic attitude. We prefer solutions to problems. We believe that creativity and learning thrive best in an open and friendly environment.
We are proactive towards clients.
Every day we anticipate our clients’ experience and try to improve it. We want to give our clients access to the most transformative ideas using the talent within their organizations. We keep up with the latest trends and dedicate our full efforts and attention to understanding them. We believe our clients’ success is our success.
Better and better.
We know satisfaction, but we never settle for anything less than perfect. We always want to improve, individually and collectively. We strive for excellence in all areas. We learn every day thanks to our healthy curiosity and the pleasure of improving and sharing continuously. We also learn from our mistakes, because we never want to stop learning.
We move fast, and are not afraid to break dishes.
We focus on building more things and learning faster. We are dynamic. Moving fast sometimes implies breaking a few dishes on the way, but we learn so quickly that we soon hatch new and better dishes. We don’t punish ourselves for mistakes that arise from experimentation, because we try to learn from them.
We are part of society.
Our DNA includes peer-to-peer work, collaboration and contributing. We feel that our cog in the wheel of society must be perfect for us, in order to be able to seek and offer support to others. We have the aim to help improve the lives of organizations, people and society with our work and part of our profits.
We are barmen for ideas.
We are a cocktail shaker where our clients can mix their talent and creativity. For us, nothing is established beforehand. We question everything, even ourselves. We are always looking for new points of view. We listen and ask ourselves a thousand why’s and wonder if there are alternatives, if we can transfer ideas from one area to another, or turn them upside down.
