All potential winners start their journey via an application. Applications can only be made by members of The Entrepreneurial Chase. Each application is done as a team of three. Teamwork is of the greatest importance in The Entrepreneurial Chase and each application must state how all three team members complete each other in terms of skills and personality. The initial application takes 30 minutes and will be available from the 10th of May. Here are a short list of what would be covered:
- Team Profile
- Individual Profiles
- Current Entrepreneurial Ventures
- Previous Entrepreneurial Initiatives
- Grade of ambition and creativity
In order to improve the chances of entering The Entrepreneurial Chase there is a qualification round. This exists to ensure the quality of entrants and give an idea of what kind of challenges they would face in the final Entrepreneurial Chase. Qualification events are hosted by our Hosting Partners and a complete list of when they are held can be found here.
Each team still in for this stage will need to submit a more detailed application including an CV for each individual in the team. The four selected clients, for which the teams will be solving business problems, will then gain access to the selected few. Based on their preference together with the voice of The Entrepreneurial Chase eight teams of three will then be selected to compete in The Entrepreneurial Chase. Upon announcement the competition starts!
This is the final stage of The Entrepreneurial Chase. From hundreds of entrants only a few selected stand tall and compete for the grand first prize. They become entrepreneurs for a day and are sent out to four different companies. At each stop they face an “E-Case” based on a real current business problem. Under tough time pressure and with no prior knowledge of the missions they compete in producing ideas and solutions that the companies can implement. Every team will face all four problems and the result of each mission is rated by a jury and the companies themselves.
Winners of The Entrepreneurial Chase will win a trip to San Francisco including meetings with executives at Google, Facebook and Twitter. It is a big inspirational trip that will give you the insights of how a company with a true entrepreneurial spirit work. No other company than Google has been so successful in breeding entrepreneurs and truly leading the way of how to create a workplace where you are in charge of your own projects.
Simply: Shake hands with hundreds of start-up founders, meet top executives at companies at the world’s leading tech companies and best of all: The beer is on us!
