SolBridge Students win the Most Innovative Scaling Idea at the 2023 Global Scaling Challenge
We are thrilled to announce that a group of SolBridge students, composed of Gonzales Pamela Winda(Master), Matteo Zanini (BBA), Ngoc Nguyen (BBA), and Zhyldyzai Muratbekova(BBA), has won a cash prize for the most Innovative Scaling Idea at the 2023 Global Scaling Challenge (GSC). Organized by the Anderson School of Management at the University of New Mexico, this competition challenges student teams and mentors to understand and solve complex scaling needs and challenges that firms face in a diverse environment.
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. Expert-led student teams present their ideas to these firms and judges in a live internet-based format.
This year's competition was incredibly challenging, with 35 teams from 25 universities competing in the Regional Qualifiers and only 21 teams making it to the final stage. However, the SolBridge team presented their innovative ideas to scale up two companies in the space industry, impressing the judges and winning the 'The Most Innovative Scaling Idea' prize.
Mentored by Prof. Roger Royo and Prof. Ronny Estrella, this achievement is a testament to the dedication of the SolBridge Startup Center to prepare and mentor students to excellence and innovation. We are incredibly proud of the team's hard work, dedication, and exceptional performance. Congratulations on a well-deserved prize!
