IIM Bangalore’s International Business Summit Vista 2020, in association with the Student Alumni Committee, presents “Thinking out of the Box

Being at home has led us to discover the mini-universe of objects that exists right in front of us. Think a bottle can only store water? What else, you wonder, can the mop do? Why should a plate only be used for eating? Do you also have the “plastic bag of plastic bags”? What does a bucket have on its bucket list?

Here’s your chance to think out of the box and challenge yourselves to come up with innovative and unconventional uses of household objects and get mentored by esteemed IIM alumni to build a strategy for your innovation. Channel your creativity, get inventive, and unleash the capabilities of the pen holder that is currently destined to only hold pens.

Round 1: Pre-Vista Prelims
A short quiz (MCQs + subjective questions) to help us assess you as a team. Be succinct and effective! This will be an elimination round. You will be judged on the number of correct answers and the clarity and relevance of your thought process. Access the questions on D2C under Round 1 detail. Top 8 teams will qualify to the next round.

Round 2: Finals (Online)
Ideate an unconventional use of a random household product, under the guidance of IIMB Alumni. Come up with a strategy to sell the product and pitch it to a panel of IIMB Alumni.
