The Business Games will consist of 6 challenges, held over 7 weeks, starting on the 1st of May.
Each challenge will be different; some physical challenges, some puzzles, some skill based and some general knowledge tests.
Companies and organisations are invited to take part by signing up as a team, to compete for the title of the ‘Winners of the York Business Games 2019’.
Each team can consist of up to 10 members, with each event requiring a team of 6 to compete. You can swap which team members take part in each activity, it’s not necessary for each team member to attend every event.
Each team is encouraged to raise money for a charity of their choice. It is suggested the target amount be at least £150. Online fundraising should be completed through JustGiving.
The scoring system is explained in more detail on our website. Points will be allocated based on each team’s performance in the weekly challenges, along with points for the group raising the most money for their chosen charity each week.
The combined points will be used to determine the overall winners, with prizes being awarded to the winning teams.
Your £150 team signup fee will be used to help fund the challenges and support the games. As a team you will have a profile listing on the York Business Games website, along with a link and mini profile on our main page when you sign up.
Your profile can include a short summary of your company and your team, contact details (including links to your website and social media accounts) along with a photo of your team and company logo, and an embedded link to your Just Giving fundraising account.
In the run up to the games we will be promoting the challenges through social media and digital marketing, which each team will be invited to take part in. We will release updates on each new team (with links to your websites or social media, as desired) on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, along with blog posts promoting your team and another post promoting your charity.
We will be posting regular updates throughout the games, including using images taken at each event. We will tag your accounts in updates whenever possible, and engage with any activities you tag our accounts in.
We will be encouraging members from different teams to post updates on the blog following events, with links through to your company websites and accounts.
