JIBS arranges an annual student competition to stimulate entrepreneurship and creativity. The competition is developed to foster cross-disciplinary thinking and teamwork among students from School of Engineering and Jönköping International Business School.

Each year a different company is invited to present a problem they are encountering. The teams are then allowed 24 hours to come up with a solution and prepare a pitch to sell it. On the final day they pitch their solutions to a jury.

The best pitches are repeated in a grand finale, open for all students and faculty. Winning team and runner ups get prizes for the equivalent of up to 120.000 SEK in total. 

Welcome to the Grand Final

The Grand Final of the JIBS Entrepreneurship Challenge 2020 will be held on April 1st, 15:00 In room B1024 at Jönköping International Business School. You can find more information about the event herelänk till annan webbplats, öppnas i nytt fönster.

Don't miss when the best six teams pitch their ideas and compete of a price pool worth 120 000 SEK.


JIBS Entrepreneurship Challenge is based on a donation from the Lennart “Aktiestinsen” Israelsson’s foundation. Lennart Israelsson, born in 1916, made his fortune buying stocks. He bought his first stock in 1946 for 600 sek and at most the value of his portfolio grew to over 140 million sek!
