Here are some of the projects we've been working on:
High School Case Competition
High School Case Competition (HSCC) works to give back to the community through the use of free student run consulting services. Each year the competition gives an opportunity to high school students to gain real life exposure in the consulting field by organizing a case competition at McIntire School of Commerce.The project team works side by side with local Charlottesville businesses to come up with the case that asks for the best method to improve that business either financially or through new forms of exposure. Related tasks for the team include business relations, securing the sponsorship, event planning, budgeting and strategic cost management.
Women in Entrepreneurship
Women in Entrepreneurship assists local businesses run by female entrepreneurs with various aspects of business development. This year, the client is Modatrova (www.modatrova.com), a fashion startup founded by a 4th year Commerce student. Fashion designers upload their designs, people vote for their favorites, then only the top designs go into production and displayed on the e-commerce website. Bridging the gap between designers and shoppers, Modatrova serves as a platform for designers and customers to optimize the fashion experience.
