The 21 Day Challenge is back for 2016 and is looking to be one hell-of-a-ride.
The 21 Day Challenge brings together six teams of five students, paired with industry mentors, to come up with a solution to a problem in a community. The winning team gets and all-expenses-paid trip to the location to implement their idea. Last year the focus was on the Philippines, this year we are heading to Niue!
The 21 Day Challenge was a great success last year and you can read all about the winning team’s experience in the Philippines on the blog.
Applications are now open and are closing on the 22nd of April at 12pm. Head to the UC Centre for Entrepreneurship (UCE) website for more information and to apply!
The 21 Day Challenge last year was enormously popular…so much so that it is happening again this year!
You can find out more by heading along to an Information Session on Monday the 4th of April from 12 to 1pm in C3 Lecture Theatre.
At this session the Pacific nation for the focus of the Challenge will be announced and applications will be open.
The 21 Day Challenge brings together six teams of five students, paired with industry mentors, to come up with a solution to a problem in a Pacific community. The winning team will be flown to the disclosed location to implement their idea (all expenses paid). It is open to all students from any discipline.
There will be presentations from last year’s winning teams talking about their experiences in the Philippines.
