Common Questions

Can I sign up a team even if my school is not registered to compete? 

Yes! As part of the CapSource Experiential Promise, you will be able to participate in the case competition as a Student Ambassador. As an Ambassador, you will simply recruit more students from your school and share about your experience with your network. ** Please still complete the registration form and check that your school is not listed in the dropdown of registered schools. You will receive an email with next steps for the Ambassador Program.

How many people can be on a team? 

Each team can have 3 – 4 students!

Can students from different schools compete? 

Yes, students from different universities can be on the same team! **Please be sure to make the team name the same.**

Can undergraduate and graduate students participate? 

Yes, both undergraduate or graduate students are eligible to participate.  Undergraduate and graduate students cannot be on the same team. Students do not need to be the same major.

Do I need to pay to participate? 

Nope! Your university has it covered! Just focus on putting your best ideas forward and develop high-quality deliverables.

Information about the timeline, project goals, and final deliverable expectations for the competition will be released on Wednesday, October 21st!
