Avenir is an annual competition organized by BCIS students and sponsored by Queensland University of Technology (QUT). It aims to give students the opportunity to be involved in organizing and hosting a large event and also gives participants the opportunity to work with real entrepreneurs and get feedback from experienced mentors and judges.

This year, we had 16 teams from six different school in Beijing sharing their business ideas whilst focusing on a theme of sustainability. Avenir is closely aligned to our school mission here at BCIS, which is to "challenge and empower students to be compassionate and inspired people, who act for the good of all and for the sustainable development of the world."

If you are interested in participating in Avenir 2020, either as a sponsor, participant, mentor, or judge, please send your name, school/company name, and email address to Avenir@bcis.cn, and we will send you more details about next year's event.
