Sponsor a Calvin Action Project

Calvin Action Projects (CAPs) provide teams of students in various business courses with opportunities to work as consultants to help your business or non-profit find solutions to a real business problem. As a CAP sponsor, you define a tangible problem your business is facing. Business challenges or opportunities should be marketing, strategic, or operational in nature and should have no existing or obvious solution. At the end of the semester, you will receive a comprehensive set of solutions or recommendations from your Calvin Business team.
