The competition starts from the provincial level and challenges high school students from all 10 provinces in Zimbabwe to develop and pitch business ideas, guided through specially curated project-based learning curricula and a team of international business mentors and industrialists.
Winning teams will be selected to participate in national final competitions where several prizes will be won including an opportunity to participate in a Virtual Innovation Accelerator program through which seed funding is provided to make the best business ideas come to fruition.

Some of these ventures include:

The training focused on equipping educators with the necessary skills and tools for assisting learner teams to develop their venture solutions.

Educators are encouraged to enroll their schools in the highly anticipated NBCC 2023 and seize the opportunity to secure a remarkable USD 5000 seed capital for their learners’ ventures and also receive global and local mentorship and advisement.
