Be the case company in JIBS Entrepreneurship Challenge

JIBS arranges an annual student competition to stimulate entrepreneurship and creativity. 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 final, open for all students and faculty. Winning team and runner ups get prizes for the equivalent of up to 130.000 SEK in total. The competition is developed to foster cross-disciplinary thinking and teamwork among students from School of Engineering and Jönköping International Business School.

"JIBS Entrepreneurship Challenge is an essential part of our strategic intent to create collaborations with JU and, perhaps above all, with students who can enrich and challenge our external analysis. It is extremely valuable to get this kind of input and energy."

Björn Holm, CEO, T-Emballge AB
