What is RISE?

RISE stands for Real World Impact, Solutions, and Education. It's our annual Social Business Case Competition, dedicated to adressing real-world challenges. RISE unfolds in two distinct phases: During the autumn semester, participants engage in workshops to build a strong foundation in case solving. In the spring semester, teams take part in a dynamic case competition where they apply their knowledge by helping social businesses overcome their challenges


Why participate in RISE?

Participate in RISE to gain hands on-experience in creating, pitching and executing innovative ideas in an encouraging atmosphere. Collaborate with experienced students and professors to solve exciting real-world cases. Strenghten sought-after skills, earn valuable certificates, and have the chance to win amazing prices, all white making a tangible impact by helping companies tackle their challenge.


You can apply on your own or with a team!

How are the workshops structured?

Our workshops follow a structured format that offers participants valuable insights and hands-on experience. Each workshop includes a theory module led by Professor Pfister and the release of a trial case, challenging teams to craft solutions within the week. Participants then present their solutions, fostering collaborative learning. As the workshop cycle ends, we host an exciting case night—an intense session where you'll confront and conquer a series of diverse challenges, putting your skills to the test.

How is the RISE case competition structured?

In the spring competition, we continue our journey by immersing ourselves in real-world challenges. Following the kick-off event, participants who didn't join us in the autumn workshops take on a trial case within a week. Afterwards, we host a workshop, and the trial case solutions are presented. One week later, we introduce our partner companies along with their distinctive challenges. Participants then have two weeks to solve two cases and then present them at the final event alongside our partner companies and expert judges
