JA & Launch Lesson

A survey of 1,000 teens and 1,000 parents of teens was recently conducted by ORC international in order to explore the opinions of entrepreneurship. From this study, JA found that nine-in-ten parents would be extremely or very likely to support their teen’s interest in becoming an entrepreneur as an adult. Half of the surveyed teens reported they would need more information on what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur while 35% reported they would need a role model who is a business owner in order for them to consider pursuing starting their own business. To address this, JA and EY are working together on JA Launch Lesson.

JA Launch Lesson brings entrepreneurs and small business owners and high school students together to explore the highlights and challenges of entrepreneurship, as well as the preparation required for successful participation in the global economy.
