Allan Gray Orbis Foundation’s 4th Entrepreneurial Challenge
Allan Gray in partnership with the Allan Gray Orbis Foundation are running the Allan Gray Entrepreneurship Challenge. The Entrepreneurial Challenge has been running for 4 years now where students from Grades 8 to 12 compete by completing micro challenges to improve and develop their entrepreneurial thinking and skills.
This year the Allan Gray Orbis Foundation decided that they wanted to add a gamification element to the challenge and approached Sea Monster to create an application* available on iOS and Android as well as a website with some awesome new graphics.
Learners will now be able to complete all micro challenges on the website or the Sea Monster developed app to earn points for their school as well as individually, to gain some fantastic entrepreneurial skills as well as potentially attend the awards ceremony in Johannesburg on 11 October 2018.
The competition starts on Wednesday 1 August 2018 at 12:00 and ends on Wednesday 12 September 2018 at 23:59. Signing up is absolutely free! You can also win some great prizes.
*The application is still under development and will be released when the competition starts on 1 August 2018.
