"The learning materials were really useful, especially for me as I had never get into investing before."
Investment Challenge PLAYER
"In my opinion it was not simply the impersonation of an investor with a budget of 1 million dollars (which is quite amazing by itself), but mostly the susinability element that would lead us. And last but not least, the chance of learning more and directly about how the market works."
