Not at all – but once you realize how much you’re learning, how much fun you’re having, and how you’re able to add weight to your CV from the AGEC Certificate awaiting you at the end of gameplay – you’ll be so glad you took part. Plus, it’s free, so there’s absolutely nothing to lose.
Unfortunately, this challenge is only for High School and TVET College students. Don’t worry though – we have a great game for Primary School learners too! You can find out more about the game Primary Champions: Young Business Mind.

Absolutely not! In fact, we discourage the use of multiple accounts and participants with multiple profiles are automatically disqualified from prizes. Like any other social media network, participants must use their login details to access the same profile and participate from.
Technically, AGEC is a year ‘round movement, meaning there are constant activities to take part in and win big throughout the year! The 2D Gameplay will be available for 3 months from 1 February to 30 April, so players can start and complete the game anytime within this period. Other activities such as mini challenges will be available thereafter and announced via email to registered participants, so make sure you’re one of them.
By completing the quests, you’ll learn almost everything you need to know about starting and running a business, from marketing to recruitment, how to read data, statistics and product development, how mobile apps are built, how revenue models work and all about the corporate world. What’s more, you’ll learn how to do business using technology and best practices in digital transformation – important, because so much more happens digitally in the post-Covid19 world.
No! There is no prior knowledge of any sort required. You’ll learn everything you need to know by playing the game and participating in activities. Just come with the intention to have lots of fun in a video-game style challenge, because that is the pathway to mastering business in AGEC.
