Any team can consist of up to 4 students from any educational level (bachelors, masters, or Ph.D.’s or any mix thereof) mentored by you to compete in our inaugural “Global Scaling Challenge.”
This year three firms that are addressing 21st century biological challenges have been chosen.
Teams will be provided three types of information two weeks before the start of the competition:
- a video of the firms’ value proposition
- Boston Analytics artificial intelligence-based workup focusing on potential firm customers, investors and acquirers
- written material provided by the firms.
The teams will be required to provide a 10-minute presentation live on the day of the competition to a judging panel and the subject firm.
There will then be a 10-minute question and answer period. All presentations and materials from the teams will be submitted to the Global Scaling Challenge Committee.
The Challenge is a three-round competition focused on three different firms. For priority consideration teams should apply before April 7th. The Challenge will be held from April 22nd to April 24th.
Unlike other case competitions, student presentations will be made of and to “real” firms in a “live” setting.
The Challenge features over $5,000 in awards and recognition for participating teams
