To address the problem of the millions of people stuck in the dark after sundown, unable to access electricity, Mark Bent set up the company SunNight Solar. After having spent most of his R&D budget, he came to InnoCentive and its global community to deliver innovative, out-of-the-box solutions. Our process allowed him to proceed more quickly and with far less expenditure than he would have been able to achieve with his own R&D resources.
