Sponsor a Challenge

A community of innovative thinking

Surcle.io is an online, crowd-engineering platform where engineers and innovators collaborate and compete in challenges from corporations, startups, and institutions with a focus on electronics and manufacturing. The Surcle community helps Challenge Sponsors bring new products to market faster, discover new ways to solve R&D objectives, access talented engineers outside of their network, and provides challenge management and innovation support. Surcle partners work directly with our innovation strategists to develop challenges and select reward the best crowd based solutions. Pricing for our partners is a predictable, all-inclusive flat fee based off total prize budgets. As part of our digital eco-system, Challenge Sponsors also benefit from our robust suite of supply chain, procurement, and marketing tools that go beyond the challenge itself in helping to bring your solution to market.
