Retail Innovation Challenge
Wednesday, June 26, 2013
The Wake Forest University Retail Innovation Challenge invites you to help recruit a team from your university who have creative ideas and will share with top retail industry professionals.
First prize is $30,000 cash.
Total prize money is $40,000 cash
This is not a business plan or business model competition, although it has elements of
both. Best entries are comprised of forward thinking innovators who have an idea, service or product that will reshape how the world's retailers and manufacturers do business. Ideas
might come from entrepreneurship, IT,marketing, operations or finance
that make meeting customers' needs easier.
Both graduate and undergraduate students from all backgrounds and concentrations are welcome to compete. Sixteen teams participated in 2012. Harvard won, WFU - 2nd, Clarkson University (UG) - 3rd, and Babson - Fan Favorite.
The competition will be held on November 15-16, 2013 in Winston-Salem, NC.
