XPLORYZE 2.0- Case Study Competition

XPLORYZE is the flagship event of OPEP club conducted as part of IIM Raipur’s Annual Business  & Cultural Fest 'EQUINOX'. It is a case analysis competition in which teams from premium B-schools of the country compete against each other. The event was organised by Anubhav Sood and Abhijeet Srivastav, members of OPEP club. The case involved entry of a new retail store chain in Raipur. Students were to analyse the case based upon the data & situations given in case and come out with choice of location, format, layout & merchandising strategy.  In the first round, students from all B-schools across the country were invited to send their case analysis. On the basis of the analysis top 5 teams were to be selected for presenting their solution in front of judges and audience at IIM Raipur camps.  This time we had a total of 37 entries in the first round out of which top 5 teams were selected to present their analysis in the on-campus finale.
