Ulysses Contest – Virtual kick-off event

On Tuesday 11 April at 11AM the time has come: the hot phase of the Ulysses Digital Student Competition on Family Business has officially started! Representatives of the project partners and family firms have been participating in a live YouTube Kick Off Event with over 60 students from around the world.

In total an overwhelming number of 93 students from 25 (!!!) different countries have registered and been formed into 23 teams. At the Kick Off Event the first three family firm case studies were finally revealed and allocated to the eagerly waiting student groups.

The event was not only a great opportunity to help all participating students to understand everything about the contest, but also to get to see some faces, ask questions and read comments from other participants.

For the next 14 days, students will now have the unique chance to work on real life family firm case studies with complex challenges & problems and will have to find innovative and creative approaches for solutions. From 25 April to 2 May all case study results will be evaluated. Only the best solutions (max 9 teams) will be selected and proceeded to the second round. We wish all students good luck & a great experience!

Stay tuned for further news & updates! 🚀
