Inaugural Midwest Entrepreneurship Case Competition attracts teams across the Midwest

The Midwest Entrepreneurship Case Competition (MECC), sponsored by SimplyAnalytics, attracted students from five institutions: Indiana University–Bloomington, Michigan State University, Purdue University–West Lafayette, St Louis University, and University of Wisconsin–Whitewater. Five teams, including 20 participants, advanced to the final round of presentations, which was held virtually on Saturday, February 24th.

This year’s case centered around Bulk Sauce, LLC, a startup specializing in protein-fortified BBQ sauces. To tackle this case, participants were granted complimentary access and training for SimplyAnalytics, a consumer data mapping and visualization tool. By conducting market research and keyword research, teams engaged in data-driven analysis and offered innovative market solutions, demonstrating their exceptional information literacy skills when solving real-world business problems.
