Cassie Knigge, Beta Alpha Psi financial vice president and accountancy student, was part of the winning team of Project Run With It at the Beta Alpha Psi 2018 Annual Meeting.
For the competition, teams are created from individual applications. Teams are given a real-life business problem of an actual not-for-profit organization. Team members do not have contact with each other until the Annual Meeting where they have one and a half days to develop a formal presentation showcasing a solution to the business problem they were assigned. Students come prepared to compromise, collaborate and develop a team approach under the pressure of a tight deadline.
Knigge’s team worked on Cultured Kids. The business problem was fundraising. The organization lacked time and capacity to properly develop and execute a fundraising strategy
Knigge’s team solution focused on ways to raise $300,000. Along with input and support on all aspects, Knigge researched, created and presented the budget portion of the solution.
Boise State’s Beta Alpha Psi Chapter received $1000 for the win.
Project Run With It is sponsored by Moss Adams.
