JA Company Program
JA Company Program® helps student entrepreneurs launch an actual business from idea generation, product development, capitalization of the venture, marketing and sales strategies, supply chain, and financial reporting all with the mentorship of a JA business volunteer.
Youth Entrepreneurship programming is supported by The Burton D. Morgan Foundation which has awarded Junior Achievement of East Central Ohio a 2 year - $100,000 grant.
JA Company Program will provide a relevant and authentic learning experience for young people that fosters a strong entrepreneurial workforce in America. Upon completion of the program, students will be able to identify the key elements of organizing and operating a business, and consider creating their own startup.
The goal of the JAECO NextGen Entrepreneurs' Challenge is to balance the business achievements of each team as a whole with the members' individual personal development. Therefore, for a team to win this award it is not sufficient just to run a financially successful JA Company or to have created an exciting product or service; JA Company members must also demonstrate that they understand how and why the company performed as it did and can present themselves professionally.
