Tata Motor Launches ‘TACNet IdeaNation’, a Crowdsourcing Platform
Tata Motors has launched an engaging crowdsourcing platform, TACNet to address complex mobility issues. The platform will empower citizens across the country to put forward problems and challenges which they think are existent or which they personally experience in the nation’s mobility ecosystem.
Through TACNet IdeaNation, the Indian automaker is not just inviting people to submit issues and ideas, but also looking at taking their help first in prioritising which one of these should the company work on solving for, and then finally reaching out to innovators and the startup eco-system to help solve for the same.
Participants can submit their entries on https://ideanation.tatamotors.com/index, by 3rd February, 2020, by choosing one of the problem category namely Urban Commuting, Urban Goods, Rural Commute and Leisure Travel. Post extensive scrutiny for the idea’s relevance, authenticity and size of the problem by a panel at Tata Motors, a list of top ten issues will be compiled. This list will then be posted on the IdeaNation website for voting by the people. Attendees at the Tata Motors pavilion during the Auto Expo 2020 will also get a chance to cast their vote from the venue.
Through this democratic process, the top 3 issues identified will be selected and then presented to aspiring entrepreneurs, start-ups or individuals to submit their ideas and solutions to solve them. The teams whose ideas are shortlisted, will then be able to develop their solutions with support from Tata Motors.
