Take a look back at this record-breaking edition of the BCG Strategy Cup (February 17th to February 20th).
More than 1.200 registered students had the opportunity to work on a strategic fundraising challenge for SOS Children's Villages, a global NGO supporting children without parental care or at risk of losing it.
The 15 best teams were invited to the BCG Brussels office to further develop their initiative, coached by BCG consultants and SOS Children's Villages management. They experienced a full day in the shoes of a strategic consultant with team meetings & client interviews.
From these 15 semi-final teams, 4 finalist teams were selected and invited to convince a joint BCG-SOS CV jury of their fundraising initiative during the Finals & Closing Event on February 20th.
Team 42 was pronounced the winner of the Strategy Cup 2014, and their initiative will be implemented by SOS Children's Villages, with the support of BCG. They also have the unique opportunity to join a field mission to an SOS village in Africa, to witness firsthand the impact of their recommendation.
Team Mindset won the Bachelor prize this year, and received a 1.000EUR travel voucher each. Congratulations on this major achievement to both teams.
Congratulations also to all Strategy Cup participants with the quality of the work delivered and the enthusiasm throughout the competition. Numerous great initiatives have been suggested, thank you for the effort you put in having impact for SOS Children's Villages!
