We would like to participate, but we don’t have a business case?

How many students will be working on my case?
Two teams of four students from various universities and degree programmes will be assigned to your case.

 

How many companies are participating?
In total, 5 companies offer a business case.

 

Who chooses the winners?
At the semi-final round, you choose the winners. Both teams assigned to your case will pitch their solution to you in a private setting. Of the two presentations, you choose one to move on to the final round.

In the final round, a jury composed of sustainability industry leaders will select a winner from the five finalists.

 

What happens after the battle?
After the battle is finished, if you are satisfied with the results, we help you and your teams to stay in contact in order to implement their solution into your business.
