About Ayoa

We are Ayoa, a Software as a Service tool created by world leaders in innovation, OpenGenius. OpenGenius is a company with vision – one that goes beyond money, that looks to create a network of bright, inspired individuals with the ambition to change the world. We aim to be gurus in the cutting edge and the creative.

OpenGenius was founded by Chris Griffiths, a world-leading expert in innovation and Mind Mapping, multi-time entrepreneur and bestselling author.

“Ayoa is the digital canvas for our imagination that turns ideas into reality.”

From the outset, Chris’ goal has been to show others how everyday innovation is the lifeblood of success and achievement. It was from this ethos that OpenGenius was born.

Our story started with two software products, iMindMap and DropTask, as well as a global innovation training network. iMindMap and DropTask were two wonderful tools with equally wonderful payoff. They respectively allowed people to capture incredible ideas and achieve brilliant work, but now, we’ve pushed for more.

We have created a tool that is there to help others do, what we do – apply innovation. Enter Ayoa.

As we continue to thrive, grow and expand, you can expect to hear the name “OpenGenius” in relation to some of the most innovative companies in the world, both big and small. Our solutions have already been used by some of the world’s biggest organisations, and our strong client list speaks for itself.
