The objective of the GBC is to leverage the exceptional intellectual talent from the worlds’ top business schools and universities to solve a major global problem. The competition is designed to challenge students to formulate business solutions for globally relevant and contemporary ‘wicked’ problems with global significance. Importantly, the GBC is designed to foster cross-border and cross-discipline collaborations to create solutions that capture emerging transformative business opportunities for industries, regions and countries.

Solutions will consist of a combination of new and emerging technologies, as well as novel business models to support commercialization and global adoption of these solutions.

Judges are members of the Australian and global business community as well as financial and technical experts selected by the organizers and the advisory board. The judging panel will be comprised of different judges for each round of the competition. The competition is to be run over two rounds. Round 1 is a virtual round comprising a virtual pitch and the submission of a 5 page Executive Summary of the proposed “Concept Solution”. Round 2 comprises an intensive week-long competition.
