Theme

In a world where all you need is an idea, a logo, and a lot of coffee, it seems as though everyone wants to start their own business. The real challenge comes in finding investors that truly believe in what you want to do.

This year, the CS Games take place in the Silicon Valley of Montreal! Powerful VCs from all around the world will gather to poach the best talent around the country.

As a competitor, your goal will be to impress the judges by demonstrating incredible skill in all facets of building a tech business. Your teams should comprise of the top 10 developers from your company (in our case your school), and should be accompanied by a VP of the company (your godfather) to make sure the brand and values of your company are well demonstrated.

Be sure to have the absolute best from your company, the competition will be a fierce one! In fact, the people from Minou™ are already preparing themselves for this incredible challenge. I heard they have a vlog on youtube, and they’re making videos documenting their journey to the CS Games. Make sure to check it out, and maybe it’ll give you an advantage in the competition!
