The Global Enterprise Challenge (GEC) is an annual business enterprise initiative run by Broadclyst Community Primary School (BCPS) in Devon, UK. Each year, students aged between 9 and 15 participate, in teams across more than 20 different countries.

The GEC was developed by BCPS in 2014, when it won a competition run by Microsoft within its Showcase School community across the world. It incorporates a wide range of business skills while encompassing many different elements of the school curriculum, putting the childrens learning into a real-life context and using Microsoft Office 365 technology to allow worldwide collaboration and creativity.

A team of pupils from Broadclyst Community Primary School (BCPS) in East Devon and another from Gyan Mandir School in India have flown out to Seattle to be awarded trophies in the 2017/18 Global Enterprise Challenge (GEC). 

 Meeting for the first time, the two teams celebrated their achievements as young entrepreneurs, participated in a Skypeathon with children from schools across the world, met Anthony Salcito, Vice President of Worldwide Education, Microsoft, and were given a tour of the prestigious Microsoft headquarters on 18 February 2019, the date of the official launch of the 2019/20 Challenge.

The GEC is about 5 months from start to completion. The challenge is organised into a timeline with set stages to help participating schools stay on track and so that children from across the different countries are able to share their ideas at each stage of the project with each other.
