JIBS arranges an annual student competition to stimulate entrepreneurship and creativity. The competition is developed to foster cross-disciplinary thinking and teamwork among students from School of Engineering and Jönköping International Business School.

Each year a different company is invited to present a problem they are encountering. The teams are then allowed 24 hours to come up with a solution and prepare a pitch to sell it. On the final day they pitch their solutions to a jury.

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 up to 175.000 SEK in total. After the grand finale, JIBS Entrepreneuship challenge presents an invigorating lecture.
