Each year, the LSM Cup features case studies offered by companies from various industries.

  • Those challenges all share in common a deep focus on corporate social responsibility.

  • Whether the case is provided by a start-up, a multinational or anything in between, the challenges are designed to be both demanding and attractive.

  • The fields are diverse with disciplines such as innovation, marketing and supply chain management. Regardless of the discipline, the solution will need to be in line with the social and environmental values of the company.

  • Enhancing teamwork skills and discovering synergies with other attendees is another main focus of the event since every challenge is shaped to be resolved by teams.
