Inside a ‘rapid innovation session’ as The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Xinova fight malaria with tech

Geekwire | Inside a ‘rapid innovation session’ as Gates Foundation and Xinova fight malaria with techAsk a room full of people how to fight malaria, and you’ll likely hear about bed nets, vaccines and healthcare infrastructure — all good answers. But there’s one critical piece of the puzzle that’s unlikely to spring to mind: logistics, or the tedious but essential task of tracking supplies in countries with basic infrastructure and low-tech tools.

Geekwire reporter, James Thorne, joined us on the second day our Innovation Session with The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. It was a unique opportunity to take an ‘inside look’ at how Xinova brings innovators with diverse expertise together to solve incredibly challenging problems. Thorne has been following the process since the challenge was announced in his April 2019 article, “Seattle-area groups embrace data to curb malaria in sub-Saharan Africa”.

Rapid Innovation Session

Xinova’s team of innovators, inventors and entrepreneurs collaborate with in-house R&D and marketing teams in a workshop setting to quickly deliver innovation insights and generate new invention opportunities.  Our teams provide unique and diverse perspectives, deep technical expertise and experience, and energy and passion for invention.

Xinova’s 3-day Rapid Innovation Session is designed to quickly generate innovative concepts in a collaborative atmosphere.  We hand pick a team of 4-5 global innovators to work closely with our client’s researchers and technologists.  During the session, the teams define (and redefine) key technical challenges and prepare candidate solutions as a group.  The solutions are curated and ranked by the team members in the session and then prioritized for further development.  A short list of the most promising solution concepts is developed and presented to decision makers, including a basic summary of each, the associated technical features and benefits, basic technical and/or initial financial calculations, and any other pertinent analyses.  The key goal is to select two or more solutions for technical demonstration and rapid prototyping over the course of two to three months.  

The process is iterative and helps clients quickly and efficiently identify new innovative approaches for developing technical solutions, tests their technical feasibility, and delivers well-formed concepts to accelerate development efforts.
