Engage the Future: Publish an Open Innovation Challenge

Share your Case Challenges on our platform and engage in global collaborations with students worldwide.

What is an Open Innovation Challenge?

Open Innovation challenges or case-based learning activities on CapSource are detailed case studies that focus on specific business challenges organizations face. These case studies provide a wealth of information on the company’s history, organizational structure, financial data, and other relevant details.


The goal is to engage students in tackling these challenges, enabling them to gain firsthand experience within their chosen industry. This initiative aims to enhance their professional readiness for the evolving demands of the future.

Why should your organization get involved?

Position your organization at the forefront of educational engagement and foster stronger connections with the emerging workforce by embracing open innovation case challenges for university students. This strategic initiative offers a multitude of advantages.


By involving your organization in the creation of open innovation case challenges for university students, you seize the opportunity to not only shape the educational experience but also cultivate a dynamic pool of future professionals who are aligned with your vision and eager to contribute to your success.


This investment today promises substantial returns tomorrow, as your brand gains prominence, innovation thrives, and a talented workforce with a genuine connection to your organization takes center stage.



By actively participating in educational endeavors, your organization stands out as a forward-thinking industry leader. This involvement serves as a litmus test for gauging potential employees' perception of your brand. It offers insights into their awareness of your brand, comprehension of its essence, and alignment with your core values and trajectory.


Through collaborative engagement with students, your brand gains an opportunity to foster a sense of affinity among the workforce of tomorrow. This engagement demonstrates your commitment to nurturing the next generation of professionals and provides a unique platform for showcasing your company's culture, values, and industry influence.


As students interact with your real-world challenges, your company's presence and objectives gain widespread visibility within academic circles. This increased awareness ensures that your brand resonates deeply with a diverse pool of future professionals.


By offering students the chance to grapple with your industry-specific challenges, your organization not only enriches their academic experience but also positions itself as an enticing prospect for their future careers. This active engagement creates a pipeline of potential candidates who are enthusiastic about collaborating with your organization.


The infusion of fresh perspectives from university students can spark innovative solutions to your organization's challenges. Collaborating with these young minds encourages dynamic thinking and propels your organization forward in a rapidly evolving business landscape.
