built to give Passionate individuals fun, real world experiences

Started from a passion…

Casecomps was built by then Indiana University senior Michael Kokot in 2017.

As a students at IU’s business school, Michael started participating in business competitions, also known as case competitions, his freshman year and was immediately hooked. Case competitions are events where teams of three to five participants work together to solve a real business problem.

After dozens of all nighters and hundreds of cups of coffee spent participating in local IU case competitions, Michael was selected to participate in IU’s traveling team to compete in national and international competitions.

Case competitions played a fundamental role in Michael’s business education. Through these events Michael built long lasting friendships with both teammates and competitors, learned how to solve real business challenges with a collaborative team, and networked with employers from incredible companies.

Continuing to grow…

Since its founding Casecomps, has helped facilitate more than 20 local and national case competitions for businesses of all sizes, reaching more than 1,500 students and passionate professionals in the process.

Today, Casecomps focuses on bringing together professionals interested in consulting, product management, strategy, design, and software engineering together to solve challenges for local startups in Chicago.
