The Allan Gray Orbis Foundation (AGOF), a member of the Allan & Gill Gray Philanthropies and a global leader in entrepreneurship development, is calling on high schoolers from South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, and Eswatini to seize the opportunity to participate in its Allan Gray Entrepreneurship Challenge (AGEC) before the deadline on 31 July.

AGEC has introduced its latest 2024 business simulation game for high school learners, leveraging insights from past versions to provide an immersive entrepreneurial experience. Designed to seamlessly integrate into curricula, the simulation empowers learners with a dynamic tool that helps them understand the realities of entrepreneurship. Learners can expect a comprehensive experience, including shark-tank style pitching contests, school-based business clubs, online mini-challenges, and exciting prize packages. 

Key Features:

  • Business Simulation High School Game: The latest iteration of AGEC’s business simulation game is designed to be immersive and educational, helping learners understand the realities of entrepreneurship.
  • Shark-Tank Style Contests: Learners will be invited to pitch their business ideas in a competitive and supportive environment which will culminate in the recognition of top performers in October this year.
  • School-Based Business Clubs: Participants can join or form business clubs at their schools to foster entrepreneurial thinking and collaboration.
  • Online Mini Challenges: Engaging online activities will keep learners motivated and connected.
  • Exciting Prizes: Attractive prize packages await those who excel in the competition.

Why should learners join?

With Africa expected to house a quarter of the global under-25 population by 2030, the need to empower young minds has never been more critical. AGEC aims to inspire and equip the youth of Southern Africa with the skills and mindset needed to thrive in the entrepreneurial landscape.

“The Allan Gray Entrepreneurship Challenge opens doors for young and aspiring entrepreneurs to embark on a transformative journey,” says Marcel Manikum, Project Lead of AGEC. “Entry is free, and participants can expect an immersive simulation and educational content that unlocks entrepreneurial potential.”
