About Diamond Challenge Africa
The Diamond Challenge Africa is a real world business concept competition with an educational purpose. Participating high school students work in teams of 2-4 to prepare and submit a written concept for a new business or social enterprise. They also prepare and deliver a 5-minute pitch and answer questions about their concept from panels of entrepreneurs and business executives who evaluate written submissions, pitches, and responses to questions in two rounds – a Preliminary Round and a Final Round.
The Diamond Challenge was developed by a broad coalition of partners to provide high school students with an outstanding opportunity to explore entrepreneurship as a viable career path and help them acquire valuable knowledge and skills.
Top teams will advance to the Final Round competition to compete for funding that can be used to launch their proposed business or pursue higher education.
