Meet EcoSpark Advisory – winners of LUSEM Case Competition 2021
Team EcoSpark Advisory won LUSEM Case Competition with a solution the jurors found very realistic, relevant and presented in a well-structured manner. The final case of the competition was presented by TePe Oral Hygiene Products, asking the participants to solve a big issue of our time – plastic waste.
Pontus Govenius has experience from case competitions, but it was the first competition for the rest of the team. When Pontus assembled the team, he looked for people with different skills, a willingness to learn, good presentation skills, but also people with a mindset of doing something challenging in a fun way.
The team wanted a name that connected to the competition’s theme distribution and sustainability.
“The name EcoSpark was inspired by the theme of the case competition, with Eco reflecting on sustainability, Spark reflecting on disruption and something that sets off a sudden force, and Advisory connecting to give guidance in changing an event, activity, or process that is not currently eco-friendly,” says Victoria.
The team had a strategy, and it paid off.
”Our team spirit was shining through during the case competition. We had fun together! Also, we all had predefined roles and areas of responsibilities, which made the case solving easier and faster from the beginning,” says Victoria Helin.
And this was the first case competition for the team, but certainly not the last.
“Important insights we bring to the next competition is a quick mindset, respect for each other, and most importantly that we support each other throughout the competition. Additionally, we do feel more secure in solving more complex business challenges,” says William Ramshage.
