Visualizing Innovation with Quid

In early July at the Art of Innovation dinner on Pier 17 (the future home of swissnex San Francisco, the Consulate of Switzerland in San Francisco, and the Swiss Business Hub), Quid analyzed the collective intelligence of the room in a stunning data visualization.

At the dinner, government officials, startup founders, and business leaders not only celebrated the new home of the Swiss organizations, but also participated in a real-time innovation experiment. During the event, attendees tweeted their thoughts about what innovation means to them and how it takes place in their respective businesses and organizations.

Quid then took those tweets and created an interactive map. They found that one of the most central ideas discussed during the dinner focused on connecting people together in order to encourage innovation.
