Guinness World Record holding competition aims to encourage students to pursue technology careers and improve their business acumen
NEW YORK, July 20, 2022 – Applications are open for Tetrix’s 2022 competition, recognized by the Guinness World Records as the largest university business studies competition in the world. Developed and run by VTEX, the enterprise digital commerce platform, the event aims to inspire and encourage participants to pursue a career in technology and improve overall business acumen. University students and recent graduates (between 2017 and 2021) are eligible to compete. Applications are open until August 30, at bit.ly/Tetrix2022.
“With the exchange of ideas and intersection of cultures from around the world, the Tetrix challenge is increasingly relevant to the digital market. Inspiring, challenging and fostering talent is essential to accelerate the pace of digital transformation in companies, and build a world in which development opportunities are more egalitarian among the different communities that constitute our ecosystem,” said Mariano Gomide de Faria, founder and co-CEO of VTEX.
The challenge comprises 60 questions, divided into 4 phases, the first two being online. For the first time in 2022, candidates will be able to choose a “career track” during the second phase, in which they will be able to focus on themes. The semi-final and final phases, in which the participants are evaluated by industry personalities (called Senseis), will take place at the VTEX office in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), on November 3 to 6.
This is the fourth edition of Tetrix. In 2021, the competition had more than 154,000 participants from 84 countries, a record number of applications, which earned recognition by the Guinness World Records. Last year, women accounted for more than 64% of the total applicants.
Completely free of charge, the winner receives a trip around the world, visiting big tech companies and participating in events and seminars about technology on five continents.
The challenge fosters the digital ecosystem by building a valuable network of future-proof talent. Sponsor companies also gain access to the participants who stood out to feed their talent pools and aid in recruiting the next generation of digital transformers.
