Frequently Asked Questions

Each Big Ideas Cohort is limited to a maximum of 40 participants to enable significant participation opportunities. Additionally, because each cohort member will receive a fractional share of the output of the cohort, the size of the cohort has been determined to enable a reasonable benefit for each participant. 

Each Cohort will begin with a virtual session on the listed date. In the session, members of the cohort will meet and the facilitator will go over the objectives of the cohort — including the specific Big Idea assigned to the cohort — and answer any questions. The cohort members will then meet face-to-face for a 3-day intensive workshop. During the workshop, each participant will have the opportunity to practice proven innovation and implementation skills. Participants will also identify the assets that will be delivered at the end of the workshop. 

After the intensive, the cohort will meet weekly for up to twelve weeks to complete the assets and finalize the ownership and revenue rights. 

IP stands for Intellectual Property and can be in the form of a patent, copyright or trademark. 

The members of the cohort will determine the type of IP and the rights. 

Your ability to market the output individually will depend on the type of IP and the revenue-sharing model adopted by the cohort. 

NDA stands for Non-disclosure Agreement, and it is a legal document designed to protect each member of the cohort during the workshop. Prior to the end of each workshop, each participant will have the opportunity to sign a new agreement that outlines rights and revenue-sharing agreements. Participants who sign will be released from the pre-workshop NDA and will abide by the terms of the new agreement. Participants who choose not to sign the new agreement will continue to be bound by the pre-workshop NDA. 

The NDA is required to protect the ideas and inputs of each participant during the workshop. Prior to the end of each workshop, each participant will have the opportunity to sign a new agreement that outlines rights and revenue-sharing agreements. Participants who sign will be released from the pre-workshop NDA and will abide by the terms of the new agreement. Participants who choose not to sign the new agreement will continue to be bound by the pre-workshop NDA. 

If your company pays for the workshop, they will need to agree to sign the rights to all outputs over to you or your rights will be shared between you and your company.
