Am I eligible to participate?
If you are a current student pursuing an MBA (Master of Business Administration) at a business school, you are eligible to compete on a team in Product Games. In addition, teams must be composed of students enrolled at the same university.
How do teams work?
The team size is limited to 2-5 members. When you’re looking to build the team, it’s recommended to have a balance of business acumen, design thinking, analytical skills, and a passion for technology.
Can more than one team from the same business school compete in Product Games?
Does this cost money?
It is free to register and to submit your team solution to Product Games.
I'm interested, but nobody in my team has coding experience, what should I do?
You don’t need any coding experience to compete. All you need is a good understanding of user behavior, and strong business acumen. Understanding of technology landscape will certainly help you, but it’s not necessary. There are many prototyping tools that don’t require coding but give a good understanding of the product. You can find them here.
Do I need to physically be at the Product Games final event or can I present virtually?
The Product Games Final will be held in the INSEAD campus in Fontainebleau – France and it will be possible to connect remotely through Zoom. We strongly recommend that shortlisted teams send at least one or two representative(s) to our campus, but we understand that this might not be possible because of Covid-19 restrictions.
I have more questions.
What is the prize money?
The top prize winner will receive USD $10,000. The other 3 finalists will each receive USD $1000.
