JIBS Entrepreneurship Challenge is the annual entrepreneurial competition supported by Aktiestinsen.
Based on a donation from Aktiestinsen (Lennart Israelsson), JIBS arranges a yearly student competition to stimulate entrepreneurship and creativity. The competition is developed to foster cross-disciplinary thinking and team work among students from School of Engineering and JIBS.
The focus is a real life company problem. On day one the competing teams get information about the challenge and are then allowed 24 hours to come up with a solution and prepare an 8-minute pitch to sell it. The teams pitch their solutions to juries including representatives from JTH, JIBS, Science Park and business life.
The best pitches are repeated in a grand finale, open for all students and faculty. Winning team and runner ups get prizes for the equivalent of 175.000 SEK in total.
After the grand finale, JIBS Entrepreneuship challenge presents an invigorating lecture.
During entrepreneurship challenge students of JIBS and JTH apply learned facts in practice and are able to provide creative solutions to the most difficult cases.
