Startup Case Competition


Test your presentation and critical thinking skills with the Startup Case Competition! Students will be given the opportunity to come up with a solution to a real life issue that SocietySocks is currently facing. Unlike common case competitions, students will be challenged with the task of creating a feasible solution with the complete understanding of the business innovation process. The most realistic solution will be implemented in SocietySock’s operations.
