Five teams of students from several universities in Greater Cincinnati will compete in the Incline Incubator’s BrainSteer SLAM to be held Friday, April 21 and Saturday, April 22 at Mount St. Joseph University.

BrainSteer SLAM is a competition with students from Mount St. Joseph University, University of Cincinnati, Xavier University, Northern Kentucky University, Cincinnati Christian University, and Cincinnati State, and will form combined teams to solve a real-life business solution from a local company.

Students will spend three hours on Friday night working on the project, and spend the day on Saturday creating a solution to the business challenge.

“This is an opportunity for students to learn how to apply problem solving skills, which is highly valued by employers,” said Anna Goldhahn, Ph.D., acting dean of business at the Mount. “This will allow them to develop more contacts to grow their personal business network, and have experience on their resumes.”

Local companies submitted applications to the Incline Incubator to be part of the competition earlier this year.
