About Us

We believe in inspiring action by sharing clever ideas.

Clever ideas need to have a place to be shared to inspire action that makes a positive difference in the world. IdeaSpies is that place.

Idea Spies are observant people who care about the world and make it better by sharing clever ideas happening around them.

The idea for this ideas platform was born on a trip to Canada in 2015 with my friend Dr Sabra Brock when a guide said ‘Promote what you love, rather than bash what you hate’.

There are now over 1,000 clever ideas, happening now, posted on IdeaSpies. You can easily search the ideas by category and word, share and rate them. The platform shows the most popular as well as the most recent ideas.

If you register to become an Idea Spy you can also comment and add ideas as well as receive IdeaSpies Weekly.  

You can add your own startup by stating your “elevator pitch” with a link for more information.

When you see something and think “that’s clever!” share it with IdeaSpies.

We support NFP’s and we’re an ambassador for Pledge 1%.

IdeaSpies was recognised as a top 100 Cool Company last year.

An endorsement

We posted our idea on IdeaSpies when we had brought a brand new technology to help women with hairloss. After looking at IdeaSpies our entire team became galvanised and even those with no social marketing knowledge, such as our scientists and admin team, got right behind it.

It was exciting to see them getting creative in their postings and see the shares on the IdeaSpies site, plus in the different platforms we were posting. The IdeaSpies concept is completely unique, it gets your team involved plus you get exposure you would not otherwise have. The promotional opportunity is particularly exciting as IdeaSpies is active on multiple social platforms such as twitter, facebook, instagram and linkedin.

Get involved, it’s fun and it is well worth it if you want your business promoted on different platforms.
