Australian eChallenge in Schools
Meet the teams:
The ECIC supports the idea that education should develop awareness of entrepreneurship from an early age.
Introducing young people to entrepreneurship develops their initiative and helps them to be more creative and self-confident in whatever they undertake. It also encourages them to act in a socially responsible way.
For this reason the ECIC is devoting special attention to entrepreneurship training through the Australian eChallenge, from high school through to university, with a view to encourage South Australia’s young people to become the entrepreneurs of the future.
However, the benefits of entrepreneurship education are not limited to start-ups. Entrepreneurship is a skill that is useful in both personal and social aspects of everyday life. The addition of the Australian eChallenge in schools stream effectively promotes entrepreneurial mind-sets and skills through a structured learning environment for high school students.
