The Global Scaling Challenge

Global Scaling Challenge

The Anderson School of Management at the University of New Mexico invites schools, faculty/mentors, and students to participate in the Global Scaling Challenge. The Challenge offers participating teams and mentors a unique opportunity to understand and solve complex scaling needs and challenges that firms face operating in a highly diverse environment. These are real firms and the expert-led student teams will be presenting their ideas to these firms and judges in a live internet-based format.

The competition will challenge student teams and mentors to comprehend complex scaling challenges/needs of ‘live’ entrepreneurial small firms and design strategies for their short-term and long-term growth. The Challenge allows the mentored student teams to assess the practical relevance of their learning and knowledge in a new and highly diverse operating environment. The Challenge also invites entrepreneurial firms, with high growth aspirations seeking to position their firms for future growth, to apply for the competition.

Given the tremendous response to the Challenge from schools, mentors, and student teams from around the world, participating firms will receive innovative advice from a highly talented and diverse pool of students, faculty, and mentors. We also invite faculty, experts, entrepreneurs, and community leaders to serve as judges for the Challenge. The Challenge features over $5,000 in awards and recognition for participating teams.

Please complete the appropriate application if you are interested in participating in the competition.
