Evonik uses the global ideation jam format to pool the knowledge of employees from all over the world, to generate creative ideas, to assess the potential of these ideas, and ultimately, to develop a business model from them. The process starts online. The participants are then taught important skills on presenting and implementing their ideas in a boot camp, and the best idea is rewarded with the Evonik Entrepreneurship Award. Find out more here.
