WHAT IS THE ELS CASE COMPETITION?
The ELS Case Competition offers a unique eight-week opportunity for young professionals and executives to work together to solve a community issue. Teams will be immersed in learning about a particular community challenge and positioned to identify creative solutions, develop personally and professionally, sharpen their virtual presence, and form an instant network of individuals with diverse backgrounds and leadership styles.
ELS created this “Shark Tank” style competition to allow for innovative thinking, problem-solving and professional development, all while offering up ideas that may have a long-term impact on our community.
All teams pitch to a panel of judges in rounds one and two. Three teams proceed to the final round. All participants will come together for the Culmination and Recognition event open to the public. Winners will be announced at this event.
Funds raised through the ELS Case Competition will address barriers that contribute to local hunger and access to food.
