Brite Idea Lab launches new “match” portal connecting Entrepreneurs to Corporate America
Atlanta, GA, December 12, 2015 - Brite Idea Lab, a Georgia corporation, is empowering today’s Internet connected world matching entrepreneurs to resources, based on their specific NEEDS, then managing the engagement once the connection is established.
The Match process connects “Submitters” (inventors, entrepreneurs, students, small business owners based on NEEDS with “Collectors” (corporations, organizations, education, government and business service providers) based on what they are looking for or services they provide.
Founder, Larry White, stated that Brite Idea Lab grew out of the need to connect Entrepreneurs with Corporations recognizing the diversity that exists finding resources based on the stage of growth from an idea to a fundable series A or B round company. Corporations have the resources and infrastructure to scale “Ideas.” Their challenge is generating ideas internally and from the external entrepreneurial community. Conversely, entrepreneurs have no clear conduit to submit ideas to corporate America or other resources providing services to grow early stage small business ventures.
Brite Idea Lab provides both a Public-facing and a private-branded internal “match” platform to manage the pipeline of innovation coming from external and internal resources.
The proprietary Matching Algorithm extends today’s advanced search engine processes where “Ideal” candidate sets are automatically delivered based on members business credentials, needs and match preferences. Matches can be distilled to validate the fit, request connection for more details and then followed in the members back office to establish an automatic dialogue and notification going forward.
Portfolio Management enables both parties to group and store profiles and ideas in their back office to evaluate, incubate, curate, and most importantly, “Dispatch” to ideas downstream to other colleagues or business units.
Brite Idea Lab provides a modern cloud-based pipeline management solution for business, organizations, universities and government to “collect” Innovation based on their specifications from employees and the outside grass roots entrepreneurial world. Conversely, Brite Idea Lab enables “submitters” to confidently post multiple ideas, without giving away their IP, to find resources in today’s global Internet world based on “Matching” their needs.
