Welcome to the GI Challenge!

AN Entrepreneurship program for

15 to 21 year olds.

The 2024 GI Challenge is underway!

The GI Challenge is an independently run entrepreneurship program for 15-21 year olds from the Sunshine Coast and Noosa.

The GI Challenge has run annually since 2015, even during Covid! The program empowers young entrepreneurs to translate an idea into a viable business through mentoring, skills development and business connections in a collaborative and inspiring environment.

In 2024 the program kicks off on 15 July and culminates in Pitch Night on 2 October.
