Do you have a waiting list?
Yes, participants who are not selected in the first round, have a chance to be on the waiting list. In case selected applicants are not able to participate, we will communicate with applicants on the waiting list. If you are on the waiting list, you will also be informed about that.
As a participant, do I need to prepare anything to solve the challenges before the days of the event?
Each case will be introduced during the event. However, the content will be related to real-life business problems of our partners therefore, we do recommend participants inform themselves about the current business and possible challenges of our partners. We usually have a pre-event one or two weeks before the event where the partners provide general case topics and tips of how to crack a business case.
What do you recommend bringing with me to the event?
Your laptop will be absolutely necessary for the event. Don‘t forget your charging cable. You may also bring a calculator with you, since it can also be quite helpful.
