Tell us about your start-up! Share what’s unique about your business—what are its benefits, what features does it have, what makes it special. Then tell everyone in your network to come to this site to vote for you.

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

              • INRFOOD - a platform to allow users to view what's actually "in our food" based upon the true composition; the ingredients.

                We live in a society where food has become more chemistry than biology. INRFOOD aims to shift society’s attention on the way food is viewed. We focus on ingredients rather than just nutrition facts. Consumers are often confronted with ingredients that they have never heard of and can’t even pronounce. Working with a team of dieticians, nutritionists, and the people next door we created a platform for all these ingredients to be defined.
