Business Challenge

How can we revive stores in city centers that have lost business to online shops through the pandemic?

The Problem

The pandemic has made online sales explode. And while it has many advantages to the customer, it has a detrimental effect on the city centers. They are becoming more and more deserted. Once the pandemic is over, city centers will need to be revived.

The Solution

How can we make city centers more attractive? How can brick and mortar stores in cities compete with online shopping, perhaps even be more attractive? And how can we use digital solutions to improve shopping experiences in city centers?

The Deliverables

Show how we can revive the city centers through a strategy incorporating digital tools. Present your ideas with 10 PowerPoint slides.


Application Process

Students who would like to take part in the Business Challenge Competition will have to have to complete and upload their Business Challenge until March 30th. The best ideas will be pitched in front of a jury in April. Dates will be announced soon.

Scholarship Announcement

The pitch winner of the Business Challenge Competition pitch will be announced in April and receives a 10.000 EUR scholarship.

Start The Professional Master

The winner of the Business Challenge of PwC Deutschland will start as part of the Founding Club on April 22nd.
