“Our goal with OpenSkild is to further democratize the power of online challenges to inspire creativity and promote social good through crowdsourcing. Since we've developed Skild to be easy-to-use and manage, most competitions run on the platform require only one or two administrators. With that in mind, we launched OpenSkild so that any organization, regardless of size, has the power to create competitions which unlock the potential of people everywhere to be inventive, creative and help solve real-world problems. -Anil Rathi, CEO & Founder of Skild
