Global Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge

    The Global Youth Entrepreneurship Challenge (GYEC) is an online 12 hour business idea competition for high school students. You can join anywhere as long as you have an access to the internet.
   GYEC aims to encourage young people's entrepreneurship and develop their knowledge and experience of enterprise. It gives an opportunity for teams of high school students from around the world to solve a significant global problem through an innovative and sustainable enterprise idea. They also learn to apply their knowledge of science and technology in a practical way.
   Eligible participants are 15-19 year olds who are attending high school. In order to register for the competition, participants need to form a team of up to 8 eligible students. Ideally, the team should possess a broad range of complementary skills and knowledge in areas such as science, technology, business, marketing and communication. Your competition is already starting when you form your team!
