I cannot imagine how much longer it would have taken

and how much more it would have cost to launch our ideation initiative without the Skipso Labs platform. It has been wonderful to house all of the information and processes in one place.

In 2019, Skipso helped IsDB set up our Innovation platform ‘Engage’.

The platform was a complete ecosystem of entrepreneurs, researchers, investors and mentors from academia. Since then the highly responsive and enthusiastic team from SkipsoLabs has helped us to establish Engage as a well-known innovation hub.
