Form a team of 2 to 5 students
June - October
Form a multi-talented team of 2 to 5 students. All participants must be enrolled on a higher education course in the UK and be available from October 2019 to May 2020, in person or remotely. You have until October 31st to assemble a team, but we advise you to start as early as possible so you can jump right into the fun part!
Find a company to partner with
June - December
Contact start-ups and local businesses to convince them to join your team for the Challenge. The company must be UK based and must not have previously sold its products on Amazon. It's time to show off your skills in prospecting, selling and persuasion!
January - May
Help your partner company set up its business on Amazon, from creating product pages to monitoring performance indicators. If needed, help set up a shipping process and respond to customer feedback. Use marketing tools to boost sales. Tackling the demands of on-line sales with real customers, real competitors, and real business issues is the Amazon Campus Challenge promise.
