The Hero Campus Challenge Season 3

THCC Season 3 is a problem based challenge, where we would be putting across a real-time challenge in front of the students. The challenge is one of the most important priorities for Hero MotoCorp right now, and the winning solutions will be most probably implemented in the coming 2-3 years. So, there will be a chance for the students to witness their problem solving abilities, business acumen, analytical skills, technical knowledge and creative thinking being put to use in more than xx million bikes a year, with the world's largest 2-wheeler manufacturer.

THCC is also an attempt to understand the needs of the millennials which will also play a big role while you work towards offering solution to the challenge presented. It is a team based competition which will be held in 3 stages.

  • Stage 1 will include a summary of the potential solution being sent from teams across 100+ colleges who will be participating in this challenge
  • Shortlisted teams from Stage 1 will participate in Stage 2, where they will be needed to share the detailed solution. (Hence it is advised that the teams think through the detailed solution while submitting the summary in Stage 1 as well)
  • The top 10 teams selected from Stage 2 will be presenting to the Hero Leadership team where the winners will be announced.
