ABOUT US

Prosper redefines business case study competitions. For its fourth iteration, Prosper strives to improve and foster the creative energies of entrepreneur-minded high school students. Not only do we maintain the universal goal held by all to connect driven business enthusiasts in a competitive environment, but we also aim to create an empowering experience for high school students to delve into different fields of business and find their passions, regardless of their caliber or desire to compete. Held for approximately 250 high school students in the Greater Vancouver area, we facilitate a community of learning through our interactive workshops held by renowned business professionals that are catered to students who wish to simply learn in a conference-like fashion, and learners who wish to apply their knowledge in an intensive business simulation. Led by a seasoned team of high school students, we are so proud to share Prosper’s vision with like-minded individuals, and elevate what business case competitions can offer.

Dear future leaders of the business world,

 

Welcome to Prosper 2021 – the 4th iteration of Prosper Vancouver Youth Business Conference. My name is Tom Xu and I have had the incredible honour of serving as the Chair of Prosper 2021.

Prosper redefines business case study competitions. For its fourth iteration, Prosper is new and continues

to improve, unfettered by traditions of the best. Not only do we maintain the universal goal held by all to connect driven business enthusiasts in a competitive environment, but we also aim to be an empowering

experience for high school students to delve into different fields of business and find their passions, regardless of their caliber or desire to compete. Held for approximately 250 high school students in the Greater Vancouver area, we facilitate a community of learning through our interactive workshops held by renowned business professionals that are catered to students who wish to simply learn in a conference-like fashion and learners who wish to apply their knowledge in an intensive business simulation. Led by a seasoned team of high school students, we are so proud to share Prosper’s vision with like-minded individuals, and elevate what business case competitions can offer.

Prosper Vancouver’s Executive Team has been working exceptionally hard to ensure that delegates can expect a professional and memorable experience at Prosper, ranging from the guest speakers to broaden our intellectual horizons to the invigorating case competition that will challenge your limits of creativity, innovation, and business acumen. To further prepare our beginner attendees for Prosper 2021, we are happy to include a pre-conference “How to Case Comp” webinar in the registrations that will help guide the attendees through the process and offer an early insight of the competition. In addition, we will be uploading additional support videos on our official YouTube channel that can be accessed effortlessly.

Prosper recognizes the complications of COVID-19 and strives to deliver the same immersive experience in a virtual format in the situation that an in-person event become impossible. Prosper Vancouver has developed multiple in-house online competition solutions that can be implemented when necessary. We recently held Prosper+, the first online case competition in Western Canada, on July 25th and the overall feedback was astonishing. Attendees from all around the world appreciated the comprehensive and easily-accessible conference resources as well as the case study, which was solely written by the Prosper 2020/Prosper+ executive team. If Prosper 2021 has to be offered virtually, we will build on our previous experience with Prosper+ and provide a more immersive case competition experience with lectures, seminars, and more.

On behalf of the Prosper 2021 executive team, I sincerely hope that everyone will enjoy this transformative experience, whether physically or virtually.

Best regards,

Tom Xu
