An Experience to Remember

During October of 2018, the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics welcomed nine academic teams and eleven professors from around the world. The tech-themed conference blended education and networking opportunities with challenging case questions. 

Our week-long event began with a Thanksgiving meal, a trip to Niagara Falls, and a virtual reality team-building event. It continued with an Education Day, where sponsors delivered “Tech talks” about disruption in the technology sector. Teams then participated in an intensive five-hour case, followed by a 24-hour case, where they showcased their knowledge of integrated business principles, new technologies, and their ability to adapt to the ever-changing world of business. The three finalist teams presented to a panel of esteemed industry judges, sharing their unique solutions to finding the intersection between traditional banking and the emergence of FinTech.

Participating Teams

“Wow, what an experience! Spending the week in Waterloo was both a learning and bonding experience. The cases provided to us were insightful and gave us the opportunity to step outside our comfort zones.”
