Ideas have the potential to improve the world around us for good. At Quirky, we believe that the best inventions in the world are not actually in the world - they’re locked inside the minds of innovators, waiting for a spark to ignite the flame of change. Small concepts can be the catalysts that create big differences, and Quirky aims to give you the time and resources needed to bring your innovations to life. The human mind is a beautiful thing. With every second that passes, individuals with imagination around the globe think up solutions to problems we encounter on a daily basis - and some that don’t even exist yet. These moments of creative genius are often fleeting and that is down to one thing: a lack of time, resources, or the required skill or knowledge.
