- It’s a dream for every quizzer to win the Tata Crucible, India’s largest business quiz. As the Tata Crucible Corporate Quiz begins its quest this August, to find the new champion, the next two months are bound to attract the brightest and the sharpest corporate minds in India.
In its 13th edition, to be launched on August 5 in Nagpur, the quiz will bring in innovative formats and an element of unpredictability to engage the intellectual curiosity of the participants. This year, the plan is to change the game to focus on deducing answers, rather than recalling from past trends and questions. Problem solving will be encouraged in a gaming environment emulating a decathlon style of events, along with random sequencing of the rounds during the competition.
Participants from Tata and non-Tata companies across 25 cities in India will compete in the regional rounds. The winning team from each of the regional rounds will qualify for the zonal finals and the top two zonal teams will take part in the national finals scheduled to be held in October 2016 in Mumbai.
Announcing the initiative this year, Atul Agrawal, senior vice president, Group Corporate Communications, said, “Over the years, the Tata Crucible Corporate Quiz has firmly established itself as one of the leading quiz competitions in the country, where inquisitive minds challenge their knowledge quotient. This year, we have an innovative format that comes with an element of surprise, which will raise the bar of the competition further. We, at the Tata group, have been committed towards fostering talent in the corporate world and teams can look forward to another edition of excitement and surprises.”
The prize money for the national winning team will be Rs5 lakh* along with the coveted Tata Crucible Trophy, regional winners team Rs75,000* and regional runners-up team Rs35,000* (*subject to tax deduction). In addition to this, the national winners will also receive the all new Bolt car from Tata Motors. The prizes for Tata Crucible Corporate Quiz this year are being co-supported by Tata Docomo, Titan and Bolt by Tata Motors.
Ace quizmaster Giri Balasubramaniam, popularly known as ‘Pickbrain’ for his wit and humour, will conduct the quiz.
