The Entrepreneurship Challenge is run by the Alan Gray Foundation. It is open to all Grade 8 to 12 learners in South Africa. More than 5000 learners compete. Three Riebeek learners are doing particularly well in the competition: Teneal Rudman and Sara Gopal are among the Top 30 and Jessica Craill is among the Top 100. These positions vary daily as learners compete on the internet. One of the challenges was a competition in itself - the Business Pitch Challenge. The top 7 learners of this challenge were invited to Cape Town to present their pitch in person. Sarah Gopal came second with her "Ice Cream Dream" pitch. Sara, in Grade 9, won a cash prize.
