In 2002, Skild founder and CEO Anil Rathi launched Innovation Challenge® as a university-based program designed to solve real-world issues by uniting the brightest students with the world’s top global brands, such as GE, AT&T, Hilton Hotels, IBM, RBC, American Express, Harley-Davidson, Shell, and The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
Since then, Skild has emerged as the industry leader by helping businesses, governments, foundations, and educational institutions successfully plan and produce customized challenge programs. Our ecosystem of services is comprehensive and fully integrated, covering every step from challenge design to marketing & communications to reporting, using our refined, flexible platform throughout. Ultimately, we make challenges efficient, effective, and enjoyable, allowing our clients to focus on what really matters — solving problems, building awareness, catalyzing social innovation, and uniting communities.
Skild has designed, supported and enabled more than 700 global competitions and helped both large and small organizations award prizes valued over $400 million. We have been honored to work with respected organizations like:
