Cognitio started with the understanding that anyone from anywhere can have great ideas that solve real world problems. We are at the beginning of the era of open innovation. Many ideas that could improve our lives are left unrealized because of regulation or lack resources and capital. Our attention must shift from having entrepreneurs that create short term wealth at the expense of long term sustainability to those that are intimately connected and committed to solving real world problems in their own countries with the tools they have access too. Cognitio was created to help entrepreneurs everywhere Capture, Encourage and Co-Ideate the world’s best ideas.
