NAIOP Silicon Valley University Challenge

Case Study Competition

The NAIOP Silicon Valley is proud to announce the launch of our University Case Study Challenge – November 2021!

Our first Annual University Case Study Challenge is an intercollegiate competition between full-time undergraduate student teams from Menlo College, Santa Clara University, Stanford University. Each university team will be tasked to evaluate the site of a previously completed development project and devise a current ground-up development plan, based on the current market environment. Potential issues to be addressed may include product type, scale, financing, sustainable development, transit- and traffic-related issues, community impact, and feasibility. Teams will have three weeks to develop their final presentation and will deliver their written analysis, followed by a LIVE oral “pitch” of their proposed development on November 10, 2021.

We’re excited as this will give undergraduate students an opportunity to learn about real estate and consider it as a profession. They will experience a real life development experience while meeting industry professionals to help introduce them to the professions. Attendees will have the opportunity to support the next generation of CRE professionals, recruit future talent, and possibly support your alma mater!

This event wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of our Event Sponsors. Take a look at the various opportunities or contact [email protected] to have your firm get involved in a great inaugural event. Download the Event Sponsorship Prospectus for more information.
