You have questions. We have answers.
The KPMG Innovation and Collaboration Challenge (KICC) is your chance solve some of the world’s biggest challenges. Embark on a journey of learning, explore new innovations and experience what it’s like to be a professional business consultant.
During KICC, you’ll work in teams of four to explore global issues, tackle big business briefs and even see your ideas make a difference in the real world.
And if that wasn’t enough, the top team per country will join us at the 2019 grand final in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where you’ll have the opportunity to make your ideas a reality.
KICC is a series of challenges for you and your team to complete. Test the skills and ideas you have and put your creative, strategic, business and global hats on.
In round 1, you’ll be asked:
What innovations would help to empower people in disadvantaged communities to take control of their own health and well-being?
To answer the question, you can choose any company you like (a profit or not-for-profit organization). You’ll then create an idea for that company that will empower people in disadvantaged communities to take control of their health and well-being. It should also innovate, disrupt and transform your selected company’s current business model. Your idea could be anything from a new process, to a new technology, to a new service, to anything in between.
KICC 2019 takes place 8-11 April in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
We want the best thinkers in the world to apply for KICC. But as well as being forward-thinking and innovative, you and your team need to check all these points if you want to take part:

To participate in KPMG's Innovation and Collaboration Challenge, you must compete as part of a nationally sponsored KPMG team. This means that you need to be enrolled in a Undergraduate/Bachelor’s degree within the country you wish to apply in and/or be a citizen of that country.
During the national finals you and your team will further work on the idea that you have submitted. You will present your idea to a panel of KPMG judges.
KPMG member firms provide many professional services to clients, and the challenge that you and your team will work on during the finals reflect this. You will collaborate with people from KPMG and students from all over the world to find innovative solutions for a real-life KPMG client. Get ready to innovate, disrupt and transform!
