Looking for teammates to solve product management case challenges


I'm an incoming part-time MBA student at NYU, and looking to go into product management. Worked in investment banking for a couple years, but now interested in tech. And given my limited (self-taught) coding experience, product management seems to be the best way to break in.

Thing is, I have 0 product & technical experience (never worked with engineers before) and internships haven't been accessible - many of them require product experience as well! Truly frustrating. I've been looking into upcoming case challenges at NYU, but I also discovered recently ProductChallenger (cant post link here, but google "productchallenger" and it should be the 3rd or 4th result).

From what I understand, teams of MBAs and other product management job seekers solve case challenges, hosted by various companies. NYU's case challenges tend to attract Amazon, Microsoft and a few other large companies, but not smaller mid-size companies (since they don't come on campus). If anything I think ProductChallenger's cases will be particularly helpful in off-campus recruiting for PM positions, where many MBAs land PM gigs.

I'm considering doing these challenges before recruiting season starts, but having trouble finding teammates. Would anyone else here be interested in solving company cases with me?

In my experience, this forum tends to draw mostly applicants, and not so many current or incoming students. Why not connect with your new classmates?
