Diamond Challenge Ukraine for High School Entrepreneurs
First in Ukraine Charity Foundation ICEPP is the organizator of the Diamond Challenge for High School Entrepreneurs powered by University of Delaware Horn Program in Entrepreneurship. Challenge is aimed at teens aged 15-18.
The Diamond Challenge provides a unique opportunity for teens to learn about entrepreneurship while putting their ideas into action. While many entrepreneurship programs focus on principles of small business management, the Diamond Challenge focuses on unleashing creativity, encouraging a mindset of abundance and self-determination, and promoting purposeful entrepreneurial action.
