Parker Arnall, Thanaphat Chananukul, Ben Collins, Joey Goldman and Tori Kleitz, members of Alpha Kappa Psi, created and presented a project as a part of the Alpha Kappa Psi National Case Competition Feb. 9 at the Principled Business Leadership Institute in Chicago. The team was prompted to create a business concept that addresses one or more of the 20 metrics for the United Nations’ Transforming our World: The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. In the end, the team decided to pitch a business that developed a mobile application or website that made charitable donations and volunteering easier for businesses and employees. Out of hundreds of submissions, theirs was chosen amongst 16 to advance to the next round. After presenting their business concept, they received second place, making them one of the top eight case competitors in the country.
