Important: The Global Enterprise Challenge (GEC) will not be running in 2017.

The 2012 Challenge

The 2012 Global Enterprise Challenge addresses an area of major concern and recognises that in the current global recession, young people are finding employment hard to get and for some, self-employment has become the only alternative, requiring them to make the move from job-seeker to job-creator.

Your challenge is to:

Present a business idea to a panel of entrepreneurs who are keen to invest in a business start-up which might be a micro-business in exchange for an equity stake in the operation. These investors are particularly interested in business ideas that will create jobs for young people.

You have 3 minutes to explain your idea, stating how much funding you require, and what equity you are prepared to give in return.
