Idea Frenzy 2019

Innovation Council hosting second idea-pitching event; Dec. 14 entry deadline

Do you have an idea that might make the Coast Guard even more ready, relevant or responsive? Submit your idea through CG_Ideas@Work by Dec. 14, 2018, for a chance to pitch it to a panel of judges during Idea Frenzy 2019.


Get yourself into a ‘frenzy’ of innovation

Do you have an idea on how to improve the Coast Guard? Would it stand up to a panel of sharks? The Coast Guard Innovation Program is hosting its version of the show Shark Tank, called Idea Frenzy, in February. All Coast Guard personnel are eligible to compete for a spot on Idea Frenzy; ideas must be submitted through CG_Ideas@Work by Jan. 9, 2018.


CG_Ideas@Work solicits and shares workforce innovation; submit your nominations

Formerly known as the Enterprise Common Ideation Platform, or ECIP Connect, CG_Ideas@Work gives all Coast Guard active duty, reserve, civilian and Auxiliary members the opportunity to share their ideas on how to make Coast Guard operations more efficient and effective. Two crowdsourcing challenges are open for your participation:
1) Identifying the primary challenges for the Coast Guard in 10 to 15 years and how to plan for them now, and 2) The Open Idea Forum, a general discussion of good ideas and best practices. The Innovation Program also is accepting nominations for the 2016 Captain Niels P. Thomsen Innovation Awards recognizing the year’s best idea submissions through CG_Ideas@Work.
