Pitch Location Partners

These are organizations that volunteer to assist with recruiting students, local judges, and holding a Preliminary Round pitch event for the youth in their area. In the USA these have mostly been community colleges with entrepreneurship programs. Internationally, we mostly partner with non-governmental organizations working in economic development and education.

2018 Resources:

Content Partners

These are partners who assist the Diamond Challenge with the development of the curriculum and competition content. Areas of specialty are within any topics valuable to young people interested in creating their own futures.

Strategic Partners

These are organizations whose goals align with the Diamond Challenge and when sharing opportunities, we together create larger impact. Examples include sharing one another’s program offerings and working together for high impact awards.


Financial sponsors are the wind underneath the Diamond Challenge sails and help us to move forward with balance and speed to reach young people in a rapidly changing world with state-of-the-art entrepreneurship education. They enable us to create new content, provide meaningful awards, and often provide a talented workforce to assist with judging and mentoring.
