'Solverboard' is a unique platform that helps businesses connect with creative individuals. When businesses are facing difficult challenges, it can be helpful to have an outside perspective. This platform helps companies temporarily recruit creative thinkers that can help them overcome specific challenges.

Solverboard operates as an online platform that helps businesses connect with creative individuals. Companies begin by outlining their issue, which can be as specific as a food packaging problem or as lofty as encouraging young children to read. The company then outlines further details about the challenge such as the deadline and budget. Other users can then post solutions for the company to review. If the company sees something useful, it can purchase the intellectual property rights from the author of the solution.

The platform ultimately uses the flexibility of the gig economy to bring together people who would otherwise never connect.
