A project of Enactus UBC, Impel Consulting provides pro-bono services to local nonprofits and social enterprises. Venturing into student engagement, we strive to make measurable change in our community through entrepreneurial action, all while empowering students like yourselves to become socially responsible business leaders.
In the Spring of 2021 Impel Consulting UBC hosted Stitching Sustainability, an approachable social-impact focused case competition to engage ambitious and creative UBC students. This competition brought together over 25 students in the final round and challenged them to solve a sustainability-focused business case to promote circular business models in the Vancouver economy. Four industry judges watched the teams present their innovative solutions on the final day of presentations and scored teams on the quality of analysis, creativity, feasibility and presentation skills.
With the generous support of The HiVE, Impel Consulting was able to overcome some of the challenges of running a fully virtual competition and reach a much larger student audience to bring new young minds into the challenge.
Having The HiVE as a supportive and like-minded partner brought the competition to life and elevated the community impact the event was able to make.
