The STEP Project is a proud sponsor of the annual FECC event at UVM in Vermont. We are pleased to share the winners of the competition and send a warm congratulations to these hard-working student/faculty teams!
The annual Family Enterprise Case Competition (FECC) prepares participants to understand the critical issues that are unique to family enterprise by applying the knowledge and expertise they have developed in the classroom towards solving complex family business cases. During four tough rounds of competition, teams present their case to a distinguished panel of judges who will determine which group best understood, analyzed and presented the case.
“This competition focuses on learning and growth while having a good time.“
Luis Diaz Matajira, FECC Coach (2013 onwards), Universidad de los Andes, COLOMBIA (STEP member)
“It was an incredible experience and I very much enjoyed meeting everyone as well. I fell in love with the area and the people so much so that it convinced me to include Burlington in my job search.“
Gloriann Lopez, ESADE Graduate Competitor, SPAIN
“This is a first class event. It isn’t just about competition, but camaraderie, learning, sharing and meeting diverse students and judges from around the world.“
Jim Keller, Sponsor and Judge, USA
“FECC has been one of the best experiences I have had not only within the Grossman business school, but at UVM as a whole.“
