Origami Capital Partners, a Chicago-based investment firm with committed capital of $680 million, is launching the Origami Idea Challenge to develop innovative business strategies and to identify new talent. The tournament will be a competition among several of the world’s top ranked universities (including Harvard University, University of Chicago, University of Pennsylvania, Wharton School, the London Business School, and the India School of Business) and will also include one division for any student, and one division that is open to anyone.
Join Origami Capital Partners for Stone Hearth pizza and other refreshments during Origami’s free workshop on developing innovative ideas. The Chicago-based private equity fund will also be launching the Origami Idea Challenge. In addition to awarding $130,000 in cash prizes, Origami is offering the chance to turn your big ideas into reality and take them forward as a part of the Origami team.
