How did your journey into the startup/SME space begin?
QuizJam was born in Jan 15’ originally named QuizAid with a focus on working with Not for Profits to help them engage with the community and raise funds and awareness for their cause. Due to some implications on the ability to fundraise through Apple applications, we pivoted to work with Brands as a customer engagement tool and formed a strategic partnership with the 5th largest Marketing agency in the world Havas Worldwide who helped us onboard out first paying customer being car sales. It was then brought to our attention that employee engagement, education and training retention in the workplace was a big pain point for most organisations and QuizJam for Teams was born.
QuizJam for Teams allows organisations to quickly and easily create private trivia tournaments and surveys and have them in the hands of their employees in minutes, with live reporting and analytics you can make fast and effective business decisions based on the knowledge gaps of the employees or embed training through booster quizzes.
