Competitors from all teams enthusiastically recommended participation in the event to future MEMPC students.  They commented on finding the competition both fun and informative, an important balance for the MEMPC and PriSim organizers who facilitated the competition. Winning team member Daniel Pandian said of the competition, “The simulation is modeled based on real businesses. It makes you grasp the fine thread that connects different aspects of a business. That understanding is imperative for any future entrepreneur/executive”.
