Fast Track Challenge

The Fast Track Challenge inspires students to work collaboratively on finding solutions to real-life business problems in a limited amount of time.

The engagement starts when a high level Executive presents a specific corporate issue with different elements at play. Each team of students tackles one element with the goal of presenting a viable solution to the company’s issue. This team-building activity will enhance students' problem-solving skills while offering resumé worthy experience. The duration of the challenge is between one and two full business days.

Hackathon | Save my Business

The Hackathon creates solutions in a competitive environment with a limited time frame. It will give students the opportunity to work with small business owners to help them survive the pandemic and keep their business afloat. Students will have the opportunity to develop their decision-making skills and learn how to work with tight deadlines.

The challenge will not be shared in advance and will be a surprise to the participants, who will then have 48 hours to come up with a plan to save the business.
