Arranged in Finland for the 3rd time, the U.S. Ambassador and partners have challenged Finnish students to tackle a real-life problem, issue or market opportunity that would improve an enterprise, an industry, and/or the country. Students are invited to participate in regional competitions in Helsinki, Jyväskylä, Kuopio, Tampere, Turku, Oulu and Rovaniemi. Regional winners will be hosted in Helsinki for a day of exciting workshops before competing in the national finals. Champions of the Challenge could even travel to the United States to participate in a summer immersion program.
The AEC is recommended for students aged 16-20. Students aged 13-15 years can play too. However, due to age restrictions they would not be eligible for travel to the U.S., but would get support bringing their idea to life.
Entrepreneurship and presentation workshops and final competition in Helsinki on December 1-2, 2016. More information available at the U.S. Embassy website.
