About 2018 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.
The United Nations’ Transforming our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development was used as a framework for the competition. Teams will choose one of the seventeen goals described to identify their social issue. From there, teams will create and submit a 5-minute video about their issue along with a business plan executive summary. These items will be vetted by entrepreneurial industry experts to identify which teams will move forward to round two.
Round two consists of delivering the team’s sustainable startup business plan. Teams will present at the Opening Program of PBLI. The onsite presentation will also be in front of a panel of reviewers. Winning teams will receive a monetary award to be used to progress their business plan.
