About Us

Tackling youth unemployment

The Biggest Deal Challenge is driven by the Theewaterskloof Municipality’s Department of Local Economic Development. In partnership with the private sector we seek to actively address the youth unemployment problem.

Africa has the highest number of young people under the age of 25. In South Africa, the Western Cape has the highest number of high school dropouts. For many of our youth, current environment and socio economic circumstances hamper access to, and opportunities for, work ready skills development. While we cannot address all of Africa’s problems we are determined to make a difference to the youth living within the Theewaterskloof area.

A real chance to win big

Although only one team can win the overall challenge, our primary aim is that every single participant


You have 3½ months in which to complete a series of 6 tasks. The team with the highest profit wins. Once you’ve registered your team, you will receive detailed instructions and a list of business mentors to help guide and support along the way. The best part is that your imagination really is your only limitation.
