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.
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.
To sign up go to https://app.entrepreneurshipchallenge.co.za/ and for more information visit https://entrepreneurshipchallenge.co.za/
*The application is still under development and will be released when the competition starts on 1 August 2018.
In today’s competitive landscape, brands make use of a variety of channels and platforms such as above-the-line (like radio and TV), middle (digital media) and below-the-line (public relations and physical activations) to craft successful marketing campaigns.
Gamfication is not a new phenomenon. In the wake of the Games for Change Africa festival, which took place towards the end of 2022, it’s becoming increasingly clear that gaming – and impact gaming in particular – has the potential to be a significant force for good across the African continent. Not only can the sector help drive positive change in fields such as education, financial literacy, and skills development, but impact gaming can also promote job creation and help foster diversity and inclusivity.
South Africa’s oceans, like others around the world, are under grave threat from overfishing, poaching, and other illicit marine activities. That threat isn’t just to the fish caught up on lines and trawler nets either. Rather, it represents a danger to entire ecosystems below and above the water and also to livelihoods and the economy as a whole. That’s without even considering marine poaching, which is enriching violent criminal gangs.
