GBSN is pleased to present its’ Africa Business Plan Challenge in a completely virtual format and has teamed up with Danish Edtech Startup Peaqs, in providing a platform to facilitate the competition. Peaqs is not so much a system for the organizers, as it is for the competition itself where student entrepreneurs continuously upload, display and refine their business cases in a kickstarter-like fashion. Judges, mentors and other key stakeholders can also logon and interact with the entrepreneurs via a comment function and a gamified stock market, where they play the role of ‘investors,’ and can allocate their funds in support of the projects they think are the best.
