PUT THE
BEST MINDS

TO WORK

Synapse Challenges begins with an identified problem and utilizes crowdsourcing to find solutions. This new way of doing things – crowdsourcing – is challenging business models and workings of organizations across the board, offering an immense opportunity to rethink and reinvent conventional processes. Not only are potential solutions uncovered, but so are talented, forward-thinking businesses and people.

Solutions come from a variety of talented, creative innovators who are inspired to accept the challenge, whether it’s a hackathon, student pitch competition, or corporate contest.
