How to Run an Open Data Challenge and Not Waste Everybody’s Time

Open Data Challenges are a common practice to boost innovation, create buzz around a project and build a community. However, many of the ideas, business models, and tools that are built in these events are not sustainable. Organizations put a lot of effort into creating and running challenges, and participants can spend a lot of time preparing submissions without ever receiving feedback on what they could improve if they weren’t chosen. More importantly, without the next stage support to attract follow-up funding or scale business models, many innovations are shortlived.

This session will look behind the scenes of different Open Data Challenges (360Giving Challenge Fund, OCP/ODI challenge on Open Contracting,  and ODC in Ukraine ) to share what went well, what didn’t, and what impacts we have seen from running challenges. We will then work together to build on best practices to create models for a new generation of open data challenges.
