Frequently Asked Questions
- What is the Enterprise Adventure?
2. Who is the Enterprise Adventure for?
This app is aimed at teenagers (13-19 year olds) from any country in the world who want to learn about how to set up their own, sustainable business in a fun and engaging way. Of course, if you are slightly younger or older than that you can still take part!
You don’t need to have any knowledge or experience in business. You don’t even need to have a business idea!
This app will guide you every step of the way: coming up with lots of business ideas, picking your favourite one, creating your own brand and making it financially sustainable.
You can carry out the missions on your own, in a small team with your friends or with your family.
If you are a teacher or work in education, why not share the Enterprise Adventure app with the young people that you work with? It’s a great way to learn about business and also develop a wide range of soft skills such as creativity, critical thinking and problem solving!

4. Why should I take part in the Enterprise Adventure?
5. How can I complete my missions whilst staying safe during COVID-19?
It’s very important to stay safe during your participation in the Enterprise Adventure.
Although this is an app on your phone, it is also a very practical real-world experience. Some missions will require you to talk to various people (such as friends, family, potential customers for your business, etc). You should exercise caution, just like you normally would in these situations (particularly if you are talking to strangers).
Due to Coronavirus, it is extra important to stay safe and you must make sure that you take all the necessary precautions to do so.
Here are our top tips for staying safe:
1️⃣ **Follow your own government’s guidance around what is allowed during the pandemic**
If you are in lockdown then you must remain indoors, even if the Enterprise Adventure app encourages you to explore your community or talk to people. It is up to you to find creative ways to complete the missions AND adhere to the regulations!
For example: For missions which require you to carry out your interviews you can do this by telephone or WhatsApp/SMS or even online survey rather than in person if needed.
2️⃣ **Follow the World Health Organisation (WHO) guidance around safety during the pandemic**
This includes social distancing and the wearing of masks in certain cases. You can find out more about this by clicking here.
6. When are the deadlines?
7. Do I need to pay to participate?
The Enterprise Adventure app is completely free to use! There are no sign up costs and no in-app costs. The only cost you will incur is the data required to access the internet.
8. Can I take a look at the Enterprise Adventure app without signing up?
9. I am a teacher and would like my students to participate in the Enterprise Adventure. How can I arrange this?
10. Can we participate as a team with multiple members?
The Enterprise Adventure is meant for young people to participate individually and independently.
Alongside the real-world missions that you will complete through the app, there are also lots of opportunities for self-assessment and reflection on participants' actions and learnings. We believe that this is a process that you will enjoy and benefit most from if you engage in it individually.
Therefore, while you can consult your family, friends and classmates throughout the different activities, we would encourage each of you to create your own accounts (with separate email addresses) to access the Enterprise Adventure app individually. This will allow you to engage in an overall better learning experience.
