The quiz is targeted at business professionals, corporate executives, MBA aspirants and students of top B-schools. The winner from each city will be declared a regional winner and will go to Mumbai on September 7 to participate in the grand finale, which will have six teams competing for the honours. The winner takes home a prize money of ₹75,000. Last year, 963 participants from all the regions participated in the quiz.
