Calling Businesses & Innovators in the West Midlands

The University of Warwick can help you unlock the next level for your business.

Introducing My Innovation Collective Version 2.0!

Warwick Innovation District‘s My Innovation Collective Version 2.0 is here, marking a significant upgrade to the free skills exchange and business support platform.

While the core mission remains unchanged – to connect businesses with the expertise they need – user experience has been enhanced and exciting new features have been added.

In Version 2.0, personalisation takes centre stage. Customise your feed by specifying your areas of interest, ensuring you receive tailored content that is most relevant to you. Whether you’re offering or seeking expertise, engaging in discussions via threads, or collaborating and chatting with others, the platform enables you to connect with purpose.

At the heart of the platform lies the principle of time banking, where credit-based exchanges drive collaboration and foster business growth. For every hour of assistance you provide, you earn a credit; likewise, for every hour of help you receive, you spend one credit. This system ensures equitable support and fosters a thriving community where members play a key role in growing the community.

One of the most notable enhancements is the introduction of network pages – dedicated spaces for sub-communities within the platform. Whether you’re a participant in the innovation programs or simply interested in specific topics, you can join or follow these networks to access specialised content, stay up to date with the programmes, and connect with like-minded individuals.

Furthermore, the onboarding process has been streamlined with single sign-on integration via LinkedIn or Google accounts. This seamless registration process eliminates the need for extensive form filling, making it easier than ever for new members to join the community.

While Version 2.0 is just the beginning, many more updates are on the horizon.
