WeSolv is excited to announce the winners of our most recent Marketing and Communications Strategy Case Challenge!

As WeSolv expands our company partners we are actively developing new marketing strategies and searching for a new executive hire to lead our Marketing and Communications team. We knew there would be no better way to engage current diverse candidates than hosting our own Case Challenge.

WeSolv’s Marketing and Communications Strategy Case Challenge focused on evaluating the user base demographics of WeSolv’s target market and devising strategies to engage these users through creative channels. Dozens of diverse candidates from over 20 universities formed teams to tackle this REAL prompt and have the opportunity to engage with colleagues and WeSolv’s leadership team in a meaningful way.

After weeks of research and several touch points with WeSolv stakeholders, teams submitted recommendations via deck presentations to be evaluated by an objective scorecard by WeSolv team and subject matter experts. The top 3 scoring teams were invited to final presentations.

The winning teammates below are an example of the talented candidates who participated in this Case Challenge and the diverse community of elite talent that WeSolv fosters. Please join us in congratulating these exemplary performers!
