Sharing your social innovation idea with key stakeholders

In this article, we discuss the advantages of sharing your idea with key stakeholders.
Stakeholders sharing and creating

Sharing your idea with others is critical to getting the feedback you need to turn your idea into a reality.

There’s a natural fear that someone might take your idea and run with it, but in most cases there’s little to worry about. It is particularly important to share your idea with potential customers or beneficiaries.

In this step, we ask you to share your social innovation idea with other people, beneficiaries and/or someone from the target community. If you don’t have an idea yet, help out your fellow learners by providing them feedback on their idea. After you have done so, we invite you to share your experience in the discussion section below.

  • What was your experience?

  • Did your stakeholders’ responses surprise you? In what way?
