As a very new component of the Competition starting in April 2016, young people have the opportunity to participate in an online study program at the Entrepreneurship Campus, where they can graduate with a Certificate in Entrepreneurship issued by Stiftung Entrepreneurship Berlin. This Certificate offers young people a solid qualification in entrepreneurship education, so that they may easier find an employment in their country of residence. The certificate study program is free of charge for the second round of the competition and is sponsored by The Goi Peace Foundation, Stiftung Entrepreneurship and Digital Experts United.
