The Program implemented a two-round international startup competition for high school students from Slovakia and Hungary, thereby helping to exploit the entrepreneurial potential of border regions.
For the participants, the project was a startup team competition combined with online and personal development, where they could expand their self-knowledge and entrepreneurial competencies. They were able to expand their knowledge on the digital educational interface, and at the same time, teachers mentored them from the beginning to the end of the project, supporting them in their personal development. During the competition, teams of 3 people founded virtual companies and learned about their strengths through the studies, and came up with entrepreneurial ideas, which they developed in detail. During the competition, the teams made team presentations, product presentation videos, and appeared on the virtual marketplace within the Application. They invested the points they earned during learning in each other's products for additional profit. The most successful teams received special prizes, but all competitors could exchange their virtual points for real prizes. Furthermore, in this project, at the end of the second round of the competition, a professional jury also evaluated the work of the contestants, giving constructive feedback regarding the business idea and its feasibility, as well as evaluating and ranking the participants based on several criteria, as to who they think will be “the best entrepreneur”.
Within the framework of the project, an interactive E-learning solution, ClassyEdu, served nearly 300 competing students with newly developed content and an improved framework. The digital education system provided an online mobile application and thus access to multilingual digital curriculum and assignments. It also functioned as a digital platform for the implementation of the start-up competition, by measuring the participating teams on a virtual marketplace and ranking the study results based on the points collected during the learning process.
Project in numbers:
2 countries, 12 schools, 36 teachers, 286 students
754 pages of digitized content, 328 interactive tasks, 124 uploaded videos
