2021 Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition Officially Launched
Published on: 01.04.2021
The Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition has launched the 2021 challenge for all individuals and teams eager to become thriving entrepreneurs. Set yourself up for success and a possibly life-changing experience!
The Entrepreneurship Campus and the organizers and partners of the Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition are thrilled to announce the launch of the 2021 edition. Here we are once again, after the most challenging year in decades, ready to restart our annual journey aimed at encouraging entrepreneurial learning for a more equal society. We hope that this route that starts today with a daring idea ends up in a real business by December.
Support for the achievement of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is a key purpose of the competition. The 2021 CEC endorses the Education 2030 Agenda, the ESD for 2030 Roadmap #ESDfor2030, and the International Year of Creative Economy for Sustainable Development.
The 2021 competition will be following a similar format as last year. It will run for over seven months. Contestants will be able to join depending on their age. Those between 13 and 29 years old are eligible for the Youth Competition while contestants from 30 years up will compete in the Adult Competition. All the published ideas and projects will be eligible for votes and comments by the campus members and non-members.
We would also like to introduce you to our renowned Jury of international entrepreneurs, experts, and visionaries who will have the final word on the selection of the winning ideas and projects.
