Building software to manage a worldwide contest presented a new challenge.

Overview

A global challenge is not easy to pull off. The MIT Inclusive Innovation Challenge needed a marketing site and contest management system to support this aggressive goal and who better than your friends at Bowst to get it done.

Leveraging the internal MIT teams experience from the previous two years, we defined a feature set as a baseline to help define all functionality, while focusing on ways to improve the overall experience.
