JIBS Entrepreneurship challenge goes digital!

This year, due to the coronavirus outbreak, and in line with Jönköping University's decision to transition to more digital operations, Jönköping International Business School’s annual Entrepreneurship Challenge will depart from its usual format to take place online.

From Monday 30th March to Wednesday 1st April, 15 teams of students from Jönköping University will be taking part in the annual JIBS Entrepreneurship Challenge. The difference this year is that the entire challenge will be done digitally, meaning that the participating teams will have to present their solution to the challenge via a filmed pitch. For this reason, the time given to complete the challenge has been extended from 24 hours to 48 hours.
