Venture development competitions

Overview

Secondary school entrepreneurs and creators are treated as rare creatures in African society, and this is due to their schools crushing their creativity in day-to-day mundane classroom activities. In line with the United Nations SDG indicator 4.4 of substantially increasing the number of youth and adults who have relevant skills, including technical and vocational skills, for employment, decent jobs and entrepreneurship. Our venture development competitions strive to gamify project-based learning and bring real-world practical learning in secondary schools through incentivized competition. Importantly, our competitions catalyze learners, companies, and global organizations across different disciplines to participate in the development of innovative ideas that help solve grand challenges that restrict Africas prosperity. To date, we have launched our first competition "The National Business Case Competition (NBCC)" in 120 secondary schools across Zimbabwe.
