In case you haven’t heard about the news. EProjects is back with another event! This time we are collaborating with YWIB to hold a mini-case competition! This post includes detailed information about the event as well as a FAQ at the end of the post!


What is this event about?

Our goal is to provide opportunities for attendees to collaborate and create solutions for small local businesses in the Vancouver area. We’ve partnered with local businesses to create a mini-case challenge that will test your creativity and problem-solving skills as you tackle the pandemic problems our entrepreneurs are facing.

What can you expect?

  • 🚀Get introduced to case-comps on a smaller scale
  • 🚀Collaborate with a team to come up with a creative solution
  • 🚀Pitch your solution directly to our entrepreneurs & surprise guest judges
  • 🚀Hear how these founders grew their businesses from the ground up
  • 🚀Discover your own entrepreneurial spirit

How will it work:

We will be putting you in teams of 4 to solve a challenge question from a Vancouver business. Groups will hear directly from the entrepreneurs about their hardships before heading off to brainstorm solutions. The event will conclude with teams presenting their pitches to a feedback panel of guest judges.
