UK entries open for online reality TV series for students to solve real business problems with technology

UK entries are open for Capgemini Super Techies Show for University teams to solve business challenges facing large enterprises.

The online reality TV series was first launched by Capgemini UK plc in 2012 in India, with the aim of encouraging teams to solve business problems with technology solutions.

Teams of students from across six countries compete for the "Super Techie" title, a cash prize of $25,000 and the opportunity to showcase their idea globally. 

Winners will be invited on an all-expenses-paid trip to India to compete in the semi-final round. The grand final is held in Paris.

Tricia Driver, head of graduate and apprentice recruitment at Capgemini, said: “Technology and our fantastic people who apply it to solve our clients’ challenges are at the very heart of what we do at Capgemini.

"We want to inspire the next generation of talent to get as excited about technology as we are. 

"This brilliant competition will celebrate young techies from around the world; I can’t wait to meet tomorrow’s technology leaders, and to cheer on our UK Super Techies Team as part of this global challenge.”

The UK applications are open until 25 June, with the UK final taking place 18 July.
