This is a closed session and participants will be required to register via the form available on www.formulabharat.com/students-conclave.
Overview by Team EESC-USP Formula SAE
We are a team of engineering students from the University of São Paulo that design, builds, and tests a combustion prototype for the annual Formula SAE Brasil competitions. In 2019 we won ‘Best Project’ with our 20th car at the 16th Formula SAE Brasil Competition in Piracicaba. The team motto is ‘Mente Forte‘ – a Brazilian term for being resilient and strong during the challenging experience of building our prototype.
The ones who join our team live a different kind of life during university, showing and growing resilience, dedication, and hard work to never settle at where we are, and always pursuit more This is the product we sell, we love to recruit people who “buy” this idea so they can grow alongside the team, and we believe there is no better way to spend your 5 years in college.
We are pleased to be a part of the Students Conclave project with Formula Bharat, and we are happy to share our experiences with Team Management with you!
The session hosted will be of two hours and will cover the following topics:
- Team Management
- People Organization
- Marketing (Fundraising & Sponsorships)
After each topic, the organizers will open a 15 minute QA round for questions relevant to that topic.
