The Energy in Emerging Markets' Case Competition finalists are here!
This year, Duke University's EEMCC engaged 108 teams from 8 different countries to develop business models for one of C-Quest Capital's high-impact carbon finance projects: promoting the distribution of sustainable biomass cooking fuels and related clean cooking technologies in Sub-Saharan Africa.
The teams that have made it to the final round hail from the Yale School of Management (Team Hot Ones), Cornell’s SC Johnson School of Business (Team Kaferwelp), Oxford’s Said School of Business (FDP), IESE Business School (Team Tierra), and the London School of Business (Green Chef).
The EEMCC team wants to give a huge thanks to all the teams that took the time to participate in this year's competition! To all Duke students, come to watch the final competition and network with our stellar list of judges!
On November 9, EEMCC participants and current Duke University students, faculty, and staff are invited to join a culminating event that showcases finalist teams' solutions and offers opportunities to learn more about energy access, emerging markets, and carbon finance. Virtual and in-person "lunch and learn" opportunities will offer attendees opportunities to network with experts serving as EEMCC judges.
Judges represent the following companies:
The event will feature a documentary viewing and fireside chat with Matt Siller, Head of Business Development at C-Quest Capital. C-Quest Capital, this year's EEMCC partner, is a leading social impact investor and project developer that aims to provide sustainable energy solutions for communities with unreliable energy access.
The event will also showcase the top five finalist teams’ work to develop business models for one of C-Quest Capital’s high-impact carbon finance projects: promoting the distribution of sustainable biomass cooking fuels and related clean cooking technologies in Sub-Saharan Africa.
At the event’s close, judges will award a total of $15,000 in prizes to the top three teams. Organized by the MBA Energy Club and sponsored by the James E. Rogers Energy Access Project at Duke.
