2019 Patagonia Case Competition
April 19 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Patagonia Case Competition
Patagonia and the University of California, Berkeley have joined forces once again to host a case competition open to graduate students across the world seeking to redefine the relationship between business and a healthy planet.
2019 Competition Overview
On April 19, 2019, graduate student teams from leading business schools will come together at the Haas School of Business to compete in the development of potential solutions to a real and urgent problem faced by Patagonia. This year, the case study focuses on Patagonia’s goal of lessening the environmental impact caused by single-use packaging. Solutions may include new materials, technologies, and supply chain-related innovations.
This is the final round of the case competition.
Come watch finalist teams compete for a total of $22,500 in prize money and a trip to Patagonia headquarters to meet with employees and go surfing. Patagonia aims to implement the winning proposal as part of their business strategy and the case itself will be published as a Berkeley Haas case to be taught in classrooms throughout the world to enhance sustainability curriculum.
Register to Watch the Finals on Friday, April 19!
