The Nordic Business and Design Case Competition 


We all know that the Nordic countries are strong in design and design thinking. Organized by Design Finland 100, the Nordic Business and Design Case Competition is specially set up to build a bridge between Finland and Southeast Asia.  


Our mission is to share the story of Finnish design. Here, we have four themes related to design: Product Design, Service design, Digital Design and Design as Strategy. 


According to the Bloomberg Innovation Index 2015, Finland was ranked No.1 in innovation globally. Innovation influences design greatly--The key drivers of great Finnish design come from its strong focus on innovation, growth, digitalisation and strategy. 


The Nordic Business and Design Case Competition is a true learning experience for students. It prepares you for working life by giving you valuable opportunities to learn through real-life business cases. 

The theme this year is: "How do we bring strategic growth for Finnish companies in Southeast Asia"? 


The Nordic Business and Design Case Competition also offers all participants opportunities to create strong networks of future business contact—with both fellow participants and also the top European industry practitioners and thought leaders. 


Best of all: Participation in the 5 days online case competition is absolutely free for our participants. And because it is online, it is also super easy for students to participate. The best teams will win all-inclusive trips to the "Design Drives Business" Seminar in Helsinki, Finland, in August 2017!! 


If you are an ambitious student who wants to challenge your boundaries, have fun and expand your business network, hesitate no more.
