The OSEntreprendre Challenge acknowledges incredible entrepreneurial experimentation initiatives.
Whether they start a community garden at age 6, or launch a new app at university, young people claim a piece of the action and a voice to make decisions, in partnership with school staff.
Entrepreneurial experimentation, the second lever of Education Through Entrepreneurial Spirit, has positive impacts on student development by contributing to entrepreneurial culture, student perseverance and educational success, personal satisfaction and growth, as well as career guidance for older students.
A business project by a student or group of students aged 18 years or over may be entered either in the Student Entrepreneurship division or the Business Creation division, so long as it complies with all eligibility criteria. However, a project cannot be entered simultaneously in both divisions for the same edition of the OSEntreprendre Challenge. Students who develop entrepreneurial projects in a school setting are invited to submit their projects under the OSEntreprendre Challenge’s Student Entrepreneurship division.
However, students who have a business plan for a new business, including projects developed as part of a “Starting a Business” program, are strongly advised to submit their project in the Business Creation division.
