Singapore Business Case Competition x African Challenge 2023 was launched on 25 February 2023. Thirty-four teams comprising 135 students from 11 universities took part in the 2-week program. Nine teams advanced to the semi-finals and the top three teams presented their cases at the Grand Finals, which were held at Nanyang Technological University on 11 March.
This year’s theme was focused on Africa and the participants were asked: “to solve agricultural challenges in Nigeria by leveraging climate-smart solutions.” Our Co-Founder, Saki Kobayashi, was invited as one of the Grand Finals judges for SBCC x AC 2023. Her comment was published in multiple media outlets.
■Singapore Business Case Competition
Singapore Business Case Competition (SBCC) is a local business case competition held annually. It is organised by members of Business Solutions and aims to spread the case culture in Singapore. Participants will work in teams to analyse a business case, and provide solutions to tackle the challenges faced by an actual company. They will then have the valuable opportunity of presenting to a judging panel consisting of industry experts, professionals and company executives.
Participants’ analytical, communication and persuasion skills will be put to the test against other competitors across different universities and specialisations. Teamwork will play an important role, as teams will have to work closely together under strict time constraints to deliver an actionable and convincing proposal.
