Optimize Your Idea Creation With AI

The new year is perfect for new ideas, projects, and experiments. Ideation (idea creation) is a highly valuable skill that leads to innovation, the lifeblood of any company.

But while higher ideation (the number of ideas approved by management) correlates with growth and net income, people who ideate often easily get lost in thought.

Are you one of them? Here are AI tools to fill your 2024 with actionable ideas and dream-come-trues. You can even make money from them.
