About Case Competition

Case Competition is designed to provide participants an opportunity to identify a social issue, create a business plan, consult with an expert in the field, and impact their community.

Alpha Kappa Psi is using the United Nations’ Transforming our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development as our framework for this competition. Teams will choose one of the seventeen goals described to identify their social issue. From there, teams will create and submit an up to 5-minute video on their issue along with a business plan executive summary. These items will be vetted by experts in the field to identify which teams will move forward to round two.

Round two will consist of delivering the team’s sustainable startup business plan as a part of the Case Competition at PBLI. The onsite presentation will be to a panel of reviewers as well as audience members who are interested in your startup providing you the opportunity to identify resources and meet and recruit individuals who may want to join your startup team.

Winning teams will receive a monetary award to be used to progress their business plan.
