The Trading Challenge is the 10-week virtual investing and trading portion of the Challenge. Using our mobile or web application, participants will receive $100,000 to invest in a large variety of stocks and ETFs. Rankings will be based on portfolio value at the end of the Challenge.
The Strategy Challenge is our investment strategy building portion of the Challenge. Participants will have 4 weeks to send a one-page strategy outline, which will be reviewed by the founders. Selected participants will be invited to elaborate on their strategy and present their final report to our panel of judges.
With increased advancements in financial tools, investors no longer rely as heavily on banks and financial institutions to manage their savings. As such, online personal investing has become a mainstay and younger generations have been left without the knowledge base to make strategic financial decisions.
The Young Investors Challenge was established for that exact reason. We plan on giving every high school student across the globe the opportunity to learn about investment and engage in a realistic stock market experience without monetary risk. Regardless of a teenager's background, we believe that financial education is extremely beneficial and are excited to pursue our mission of promoting financial literacy and building a better future for for generations to come.
The Young Investors Challenge was founded in 2020 by a team of three young entrepreneurs and innovators who excel in their respective fields.
Here is a preview of our advisors and judges for the Challenge! As we get closer to the Strategy Challenge, more judges will be revealed!
