UPDATE: The Case Competition was held on 3rd March 2012. Here are the pictures from the very successful event.
Calling out to all Graduate and Undergraduate students in the faculty of Engineering and Applied Science!
LoT:G will be holding the Annual Social Entrepreneurial Case Competition on March 3, 2012 and you are invited to participate!!
This year, we are collaborating with a Toronto based social entrepreneurial start-up organization and the case will be based on problems faced by this organization in setting up their business.
This is therefore your chance to,
- Solve a case based on a real-world problem
- Assist a local social enterprise in developing their business
- Showcase and develop your innovation, leadership and consulting skills
- Network with successful individuals in industry and academia including consultants, social entrepreneurs and our case-providing collaborators
- Learn the art of case-solving through a series of Deloitte workshops
Students will compete in groups of 4 and will have 72 hours to work on the case. On the competition day, students will present their solutions to the judges followed by a brief Q&A round.
Winners will be awarded cash prizes of $500, $300 and $200 and the winning team will also be awarded free admission to the Nspire National Business and Technology Conference 2012 which will have competing teams from the top schools in North America including Yale, Wharton and U of T and a $2000 Deloitte sponsored cash prize.
