An open innovation platform breaks ideas through the "clay layer" of middle management.


"Let the best ideas breakout!"

Breakout prevents creativity from being stifled by traditional corporate management structures, bringing ideas from the sales floor into the C-suite. Employees post occupational challenges and source solutions directly from coworkers. Ideas are filtered using a voting system, allowing users to highlight the solutions with the greatest potential to effect change within their organization. Additionally, Breakout supplies tools to help employees refine and promote their ideas. Executives provide insight and support on the platform, directly connecting to employees at all levels of the organization and encouraging creativity within the company.

Team Members: Brian Moss, Cara Kritikos, Daniel Riegel, James Dilworth, Katrine Rau Ofenstein, and Skye Lawrence
