The 2015 edition of the Strat 24 case competition, put on by Enactus uOttawa, was a resounding success. Forty competitors, twenty from the Telfer School of Management and twenty from the Faculty of Engineering, worked tirelessly for 24-hours to find a feasible solution to a humanitarian problem provided by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). Teams consisted of two engineers and two business students from the University of Ottawa.
The two finalist teams presented at the cocktail evening which was held at the Sheraton Hotel in Ottawa. The cocktail evening had a turnout of about one hundred people including sponsors such as IEEE, Hydro Ottawa and Ceridian. Guests at the final cocktail event also had the opportunity to hear Greg Lane, Managing Director at Cisco Canada, speak about the future of streaming and cloud technology.
The winning team and recipients of the $4,000 grand prize were Andre Smith, Joel Kapongo, Neil Gangal and Shahrukh Anis. Congratulation also goes out to the runner-up team and winners of their Pool, consisting of Anthony Tarasio, Mithun Kommalur, Kristopher Furuness and Philippe Legault. Thank you to all of sponsors, attendees and volunteers who helped make the weekend such a success.
