An Innovation Ecosystem and Cluster Management Platform to Match Your Needs


Map Cluster Resources

Map, profile, and display people, companies, resources and assets in your industry cluster.

Foster Collaboration

Bring all of your stakeholders together in a private, cloud-based environment designed to share ideas and foster innovation.

Innovation Ecosystem Platform Features


A simple and intuitive interface to help you, and your team, manage your end-to-end innovation/cluster platform and communities

Save time and resources with our private admin application designed to streamline all the activities of your cluster platform from a central location and enable or disable platform modules/functionality according to your requirements.

Complete control and ownership of ecosystem users and assets

The SkipsoLabs' SaaS platform is specifically designed to help you manage your community of users, as well as the companies and organizations associated with them.

Manage cluster platform members and companies from a centralized location: invite multiple members, remove members, export member lists to Excel, manage member requests (e.g. name changes, cancellation requests), bulk upload company profiles, and more.

Enterprise level functionality, enabling comprehensive communication and content sharing between innovation cluster managers and their community

Notable software features include: broadcasting of messages, newsletters, discussion forums, centralized blog engine, notification management system, external newsfeed and poll management system.

Launch your innovation contests and foster crowdsourcing

To stimulate activity and participation within your innovation ecosystem, cluster managers can easily set-up and manage open innovation or generic contests with a built-in software-as-a-service contest management system (CMS).

Bring your cluster ecosystem together

A full software suite of professional networking, profile and contact management tools, content and communications features to consolidate the entire cluster ecosystem in a private collaboration environment.

Map all your cluster resources

An intuitive map displaying all ecosystem assets and resources, making it easy for users to browse the platform and find what they need.

Promote your organization and post requirements

SkipsoLabs' flexible modules allow cluster member companies and partner organizations to create profiles, promote their services, post their business requirements (job vacancies, project support, funding requests) and invite other cluster members to follow progress and collaborate on their dedicated profile pages.

Are you looking for funding?

The Funding module is the meeting point for cluster companies, entrepreneurs, startups and investors:

  • Investor companies within the cluster can create their profiles, promote their services and interact with other members.
  • Individual or corporate members can post specific funding requests for their projects and businesses.
  • Advanced directories and repositories allow the announcement and sharing of funding opportunities and grants.

Join a contest. Submit a solution. Earn an award.

We have built a dedicated workspace where cluster members can join cluster-sponsored competitions or competitions on behalf of external companies. A full set of tools allows the management of entire contests, providing a smooth user experience for organizers, participants and judges, all within the same system.

In addition to all this functionality, SkipsoLabs supports, through API, the interaction and data exchange between:

  • Multiple clusters within your innovation ecosystem
  • Your cluster and other clusters which are part of SkipsoLabs’ innovation cloud
