Particeep Launched Particeep Challenge to Boost Your Open Innovation Projects at a Low Cost
Particeep, a SAAS software to build online investment marketplaces for all financial agents, launched on September 2015 a new software named Particeep Challenge to build a customized challenge platform.
A challenge platform can be used for many purposes such as launching an external or internal innovation challenge for your company or a startup challenge of any kind to recruit startups and find new investment opportunities. Regardless of your goal launching a challenge is always a good way to branch out and to distinguish yourself from your competitors in many ways. It is also a huge marketing boost for your company and one that can help promote your business nationwide or internationally.
