GBSN Partners with Peaqs for the Africa Business Plan Challenge

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.

Redefining the Boundaries of Business Education

Impact is about creativity and collaboration.
