Avenir is an annual business competition that aims to give young people the opportunity to develop their ideas and put them into action. With the help of local and international entrepreneurs, students receive personal mentoring before presenting their ideas to a panel of judges. Students can win prize money to invest in their business and get it off the ground!

The next competition, Avenir 2019, will be held on March 16-17, 2018. For those interested in participating, please email Ms. Ellie Flesher, BCIS Business Management Teacher, at ellie.flesher@bcis.cn. Please stay tuned for more information.

Before then, please mark your calendars for the QUT/Avenir Business Workshop happening on Friday, October 19, from 10:00 until 16:00. The workshop will cover the following:

* Real-life case studies and problem solving
* Building the perfect business plan
