For an amazing eight years now, we have been bringing you the RBC Next Great Innovator Challenge®. This business challenge is open to teams of currently-enrolled Canadian post-secondary students. The challenge runs from October through December and concludes with our vaunted Finals event on January 17th, 2014. Each year, we ask you to focus on Innovation in Financial Services.
This year’s question is:
“Suggest an innovative concept that will enable RBC's businesses to use big data to create a competitive advantage.”
You can review the questions from other years here. Participating will offer you and your team:
- A chance at $24,000 in total cash prizes
- The ability to tackle a real world, forward-looking problem and really have an impact on a national financial services provider (which looks great on your resume)
- A memorable, day-long event in Toronto for the top 5 finalist teams, featuring a unique competition experience in our Corporate HQ (with travel and accommodations paid for teams outside of the Greater Toronto Area)
- Networking and recruitment opportunities with RBC
