Here's what we believe in at OI Engine: 

Principles of the OI Engine Community

Principle #1: Inclusive
We believe that collaboration is key to creating faster and better ideas and maintaining happy and motivated teams. Everyone on our platform is encourage to build on each other's ideas, form teams, and give constructive feedback to help move the process forward.

Principle #2: We're Inclusive!

Because you never know where the best ideas will come from! Our platform provides opportunities for people with different skill-sets to participate, whether it's telling stories, spotting opportunities, coming up with great ideas, or evaluating other users' contributions. We celebrate impact as a joint effort!

Principle #3: Be Optimistic
We believe that great ideas are generated when there's a positive atmosphere to encourage them. It's all too easy to shut ideas down, but harder to think about how to improve them. That doesn't mean ignoring holes in ideas, but it does mean adding supportive comments that help move an idea forwards. How could that crazy idea work? What might success look like?

Principle #4: Let's be real
There's nothing quite like experience things in real life. We encourage community members to meet up and brainstorm over lunch, and create tangible prototypes to test as much as possible - and ultimately, we're after real world impact.

Principle #5: Be Open
One of our goals is to facilitate an open, safe place for discussion and brainstorming. This means that, when in doubt, we will have conversations openly on the platform as opposed to privately through emails, and all ideas or research are available for everyone to see. We aim to be transparent about how we reach key decisions, like selecting our shortlist and what happens next. We hope this will help us achieve an engaged community that feels brought along every step of the journey.
