Solve your challenges with the crowd

MindHive uses collective knowledge to solve the most pressing strategy and policy challenges

What is MindHive?

MindHive is part of Eidos Institute Limited (ACN 120 223 369), a NFP company with its headquarter in Brisbane, Australia. At Eidos, we believe in harnessing the power of disruption. Solutions to tomorrow's policy and strategy problems will come from the networks - the collective goals and expertise of real people with real knowledge. This is why we created MindHive.

The MindHive platform facilitates the crowdsourcing of ideas for use in policy and strategy solutions. It is a network of expert contributors from universities, industry, NGOs and government.

Why MindHive?

Selected Engagement

MindHive has an internal filtering system to ensure that the ‘crowd’ has an element of expertise, ensuring exclusivity and quality.

Time-efficiency and cost-effectiveness

We are listening to reduced budgets, increasing pressure to find solutions faster and quick and easy access to expertise. We have built the bus, but it’s our growing number of passengers that provides the value.


At MindHive we source directly from verified experts and utilise a sophisticated and innovative template and commenting feature. This powerful combination adds significant value to your strategy or policy issue.


MindHive’s independence, which is supported through the Eidos Institute’s long term relationships, has created a unique community around policy and strategy.


MindHive has the capacity to connect a crowd of experts to emerging and existing policy and strategy issues. This approach stimulates discussions and generates solutions.
