Looking for a fun first step into the world of business that can be delivered by teachers or led by the young people themselves or just a way to kickstart ideas ahead of the 10X Challenge?

Our 10X DIY resources offer flexibility so your students can learn how to start a business whether they are in school or at home.

The 10X DIY resources provide young people with a hypothetical exercise where they complete the first two weeks of the 10X Challenge activities without producing or selling goods. 10X DIY can be used as a stand-alone project or as a way for students to kick start their 10X ideas so they are ready for the 10X Challenge.
