TribalVision Founder Chris Ciunci Participates at the 9th Annual CIBER Case Challenge


TribalVision Founder and CEO Chris Ciunci participated this past weekend in the CIBER Case Challenge located at the University of Connecticut Campus in Storrs, Connecticut. Hosted by the University of Connecticut’s Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER), the Ninth Annual Case Challenge featured fourteen teams of undergraduate business students from across the country and around the globe. Divided into groups of four, the Case Challenge presented students with an exceptional opportunity to network and collaborate with peers from different universities as well as gain exposure to a broad array of business specialties including; finance, operations, management, and marketing. On Friday October 19th, each team of students was given 22 hours to develop a strategy and build a presentation for the CIBER Case Challenge that would take place the next day in front of a panel of three judges.

As a judge, Chris was able to interact with the students and provide feedback to the up and coming business professionals. Commenting on his experience, Chris said, “The CIBER Case Competition exposes students to pressing international business issues and challenges them to resolve ‘real-world’ situations. The collaboration within the teams was a pleasure to watch especially given each team was composed of strangers paired up the day of the competition.  Their creative resolutions and unique approaches to the case at hand were well thought out and impressive.”

Headquartered in Providence, Rhode Island – with locations also in Cambridge and Brussels -TribalVision assists companies stay on top of the latest marketing trends in today’s rapidly changing marketing environment. Given the case at this year’s competition was global in scope, Chris was able to impart his years of practical international experience when judging the viability of each team’s recommended strategies. After a day’s worth of intense collegial competition, Chris was delighted to congratulate the winning team of the competition, “X-Continent” which included: Elizabeth Bouyer (University of North Carolina), Xi (Christina) Jin (Purdue University), Alberto Parrella (University of Trento, Italy), and Samuel Supnick (University of Maryland).
