It is the policy of Prosper to give the fullest freedom to the speakers to express their opinions. The opinions expressed by the speakers do not necessarily represent the views of Prosper Foundation (Vancouver) and Prosper affiliated personnel. Prosper Foundation (Vancouver) will make every effort to ensure the validity and accuracy of the information provided by external speakers.

Case and Academic Integrity

Prosper highly values academic integrity. Attendees are subject to disqualification from the competition if they are caught sharing the case before their designated times or committing any act of academic dishonesty, including but not limited to: receiving help from external individuals or sources, providing help to other teams, editing presentation after the designated cutoff time, and copying existing solutions from external sources. Teams who violate this rule will be disqualified and prohibited from attending any future Prosper Foundation events for three (3) years. 

However, due to the research and hypothesis driven nature of Prosper 2024’s case study, all attendees will be expected to conduct their comprehensive research using credible external sources. Attendees will also be required to provide a list of sources used in the Appendix section of their presentation.

Conference Premise Access

To protect the safety of all attendees and integrity of the conference, only authorized participants are allowed on conference premises at any given time. Authorized participants include student attendees, volunteers (general and media team), judges, speakers, sponsor teachers with students who registered under “School Registration”, Prosper Expo representatives, sponsor representatives, and other authorized guests who have been pre-approved by the Board of Directors and/or Executive Team.


All unauthorized individuals will be asked to leave conference premises immediately. Prosper reserves the right to escalate the situation should the unauthorized party refuse to comply.

Conference Attendance Policy

Prosper's fundamental mission is to provide attendees with an opportunity to experience the multidisciplinary nature of the business world. Therefore, Prosper expects all attendees to attend all the events highlighted on the conference schedule. 

Beginning at Prosper 2025, attendees will have to receive special endorsements from executive team members to validate their attendance at several segments of the conference including but not limited to: the opening ceremony, workshops, case release, and other activities at the discretion of Prosper.

For attendees who registered as an "Entire Team" or "Individuals Already Part of a Team," Prosper expects all team members to be present at every event throughout the conference. If your team has an extenuating circumstance, you must email administration@prospervancouver.org and receive a valid attendance exemption before the event. Teams will only qualify for finalists if all members have received the necessary attendance endorsements. 

For attendees who registered independently and are placed onto random teams, the policy will not affect their chances to compete and qualify for finalists should their team members fail to receive endorsements for attending all segments of the conference.
