ABOUT THE EVENT

Pinnacle in its year of inception seeks to bring together the best quizzing minds in India to take on the challenge of what promises to be the most-engaging campus-based business quiz in the country. Alongside your quizzing acumen, Pinnacle will test your quick wits and team strength. So wear your hat of curiosity, find your best mates and get ready for the most intriguing quiz, with legendary Quiz Master Avinash Mudaliar adding his element of surprise.

Why Pinnacle ?

While conceptualizing the event, our aim was to make Pinnacle the most reputed Business Quiz across campuses in the country. To ace the quiz, participants will have to scale-up through online rounds followed by an extremely engaging Grand Finale at Indian School of Business, all this while competing against the best quizzing minds in the country – analogous to a mountaineer plodding towards the summit.

What to expect ?

Did you know that Facebook is blue because Zuckerberg is colorblind?
Did you know that FedEx was saved from bankruptcy by a gamble in Las Vegas?
Did you know that Google was passed over for a paltry price of $1 Million?
If yes, go ahead, the gauntlet has been thrown!
