About 2017 Case Competition

Case Competition was 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 chose one of the seventeen goals described to identify their social issue. From there, teams created and submitted a 5-minute video about their issue along with a business plan executive summary. These items were vetted by experts in the field to identify which teams moved forward to round two.

Round two consisted of delivering the team’s sustainable startup business plan as a part of the Case Competition at PBLI. The onsite presentation took place in front of a panel of reviewers and observers. Winning teams received a monetary award to be used to progress their business plan.
