Skild is a fast-growing, privately-held company that helps organizations design and manage every aspect of online contests, and we’ve been doing it since the dawn of the 21st century.
Oooh! Dawn of the century! Impressive, right? Well, actually it kind of is. Skild began life in 2002 under a different name: Idea Crossing. The company’s first project was the Innovation Challenge®, an annual contest that unites hundreds of teams from top universities with global brands to solve real-world business challenges. Since then, the Innovation Challenge® has grown into the largest competition of its kind in the world.
That alone is an impressive feat. But in the decade since the first Innovation Challenge®, we’ve also consulted with world-class organizations and produced dozens of online contests. We’ve amassed a treasure trove of wisdom, techniques and logistical savvy, which we have distilled into Skild’s competition management platform.
Today, clients from next-gen technology leaders to Fortune 500 companies and some of the world’s most ambitious nonprofits rely on Skild for the tools and knowledge they need to run effective awards, prizes and promotional contests.
Imagine what we’ll accomplish in our second decade!
