Over the past few months we ran a competition for MBA students to see who would do best in a prediction market over a period of 4 months. Questions were related to global business events and pop culture. 15 schools participated and we had about 150 active traders. Not bad for our first go-around and word of mouth marketing efforts. We learned a lot about how to run it and definitely plan on running another competition in the fall semester coming up.
We ended the competition at the end of May. The top prize was a party for the top trader and 20 of his/her friends. Last night at Nevin's Pub in Evanston, IL, Chris Fletcher from the Kellogg School of Business celebrated his win with a party to watch Stanley Cup hockey.
He sent us this picture of the festivities. Can you tell who he is? :)
