Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition

Dear citizen-innovators,

We are happy to announce the launch of the 2020 Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition.

The Entrepreneurship Campus and the organizers of the 2020 CEC invite people from the age of 13 and above, who are involved with or want to take an innovative approach towards solutions that fuel on social entrepreneurship and champion the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), to join our global challenge.

Individuals, startups, entrepreneurs, from all over the world who have a groundbreaking idea or a ready-to-implement solution are welcomed to be part of this challenge.
You don’t need to have a business plan, an initial idea is enough to get started in the path of social entrepreneurship.

If you are between 13 and 29 years old, please submit your idea and/or project in the Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship category.
If you are 30+ you can submit your idea and/or project to the Adult Citizen Entrepreneurship category.
You can submit an entry until 30 September, while the voting starts on 6 July. Hence, the sooner you join, the more time you’ll have to improve and promote your entry.

By joining the 2020 CEC you will have the opportunity to be part of a large global online community of creative and motivating people, unique networking of interactions. You can share your ideas and projects with an audience of likeminded people that are here not to say who has the best idea, but to help turn every idea into a better solution.
You can take advantage of learning from our entrepreneurial training and from the experience of our community members.
Join the Campus as an individual or a team, stay connected, get knowledge and expertise support and cultivate the skills for an entrepreneurial mindset, communication, collaboration, opportunity recognition, team building, and future orientation.

The Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition promotes quality lifelong learning in the frame of the Education 2030 Framework for Action through its online learning courses. The Brains versus Capital’ and the Sustainable Entrepreneurship courses are free for anyone that needs access to entrepreneurial education. You can share what you learn with other people in remote and disadvantaged areas.
If you don’t have an idea yet, but you want to help with the economic recovery of your community, you can take the courses even if you’re not ready for the CEC challenge. Afterward, you’ll be ready to join our competition in the respective category.

Getting through a time of crisis that affected the entire world, yet at different local contexts, calls for everyone to be able to contribute and build a more collaborative economy. The COVID-19 is a turning point in human history and at the same time, it can be your clear window of opportunity to get involved in creating a more inclusive and sustainable society.

We are looking forward to your great ideas and projects,

The Entrepreneurship Campus Team!

    Thank you for this wonderful platform, my name is Muganga Mnubi based in Arusha, Tanzania. My idea is to start a Youth Dream Hub Center where youths will be facilitated to unlock their potentials through Capacity building programs on Life skills, entrepreneurship skills, business management and innovation skills on how to address different challenges affecting them and their communities. Youths will be facilitated with a matching seed capital to start their own projects, the capital will be fund-raised locally and from interested development partners. Youth Dream Hub Center (YDHC) aim to be a place where youths’ untapped potentials will be unlocked while their dreams becoming a reality.

    • Thank you, Muganda. We hope that the competition helps you learn how to turn your idea into reality.
      Good luck!

    I will be happy to be part of this great initiative

  5. Everyone just saying youth youth . But in current youth are distract from their life goal .they want easy penny for popular , frame, money etc . Me too
    And my idea
    Can we change education system so that all the student are not qualified for their marks but their capability and potential . Because the root of innovation are indirectly connected with learner capability . If he /she is good in other skills.then school nd college should appreciate it and try to help them so that learner as well as teacher as find doing thing in better ways

    Dear sir,my project is about to develop the tribal area peoples in the way of livelihood and economically. In the rural area there is no society for saving the milk. So the calf itself taking the milk from the cow. So the people can’t get development in their life. If we start a society for saving the milk and sell it means we can also make a profit and that rural people also get a benefit to start their life in good way. And the transportation also good in that area if the people get the milk from their places to the society means the milk will not be waste. And they will be economically get balanced and socially they will be good at society.

    Hello. Thank you for this contest and the opportunity you give us. My idea to help the world economy is a mobile gas station. Such people do not waste their time and money to go to the gas station.
    You can even produce cars whose fuel is water! But these are just ideas, and I don’t know how to solve them.

  15. Respected Sir, is this platform only for business/enterprunership ideas or any other ideas and approaches that has the potential to promote peace and harmony in the world is also acceptable?

    • Hello Roba, the platform promotes entrepreneurial education, sustainable entrepreneurship, and solutions to get people engaged in achieving the SDG and promoting peace.

    Education is the only opportunity from which we can secure our future. But quality education is expensive and not everyone is capable to fulfill the dre of being educated. So my idea is to open up a school which accepts plastic as fees so kids will be able to collect plastic bottles and reduce plastic pollution. This will lead to educated minds increasing sustainable development.

    My name is Taniah Chifumuro. I am glad to be granted such an opportunity to voice my idea. My idea is to raise awareness against racism across the whole globe and by this we can just introduce workshops for youths all around the world whether by use of social media or by having camps just for interaction and help everyone to learn more about humanity.

    This is really a good platform for the young dreamers,thank you for taking such a great initiative. My question is,can I submit ideas focused on 2 or 3 SDG goals?

      Thank you!
      You can submit ideas that can contribute to various SDGs, but at the list, you can select one or two SDGs that you consider the most important.
