JA Pitch Day | Junior Achievement of the Michigan Great Lakes


JA Pitch Day


A statement from staff in response to this year's cancellation:
After weighing out different ways to approach this year's JA Pitch Day in light of current events, it has been decided that it is best to forego the event for this year and to focus our efforts on building a stronger JA Company Program and JA Pitch Day for the upcoming school year. While we are disappointed that JA Pitch Day will not take place this year, our efforts this year will not be in vain and we now look ahead to JA Pitch Day 2021 with a renewed sense of community and commitment.
We would like to thank all of the volunteers who offered their time for what would have been a powerful entrepreneurial experience for students. We also want to extend our gratitude to our sponsors for this year's event: DWH, Independent Bank, and Bissell. Their financial contributions will ensure the JA Company Program and JA Pitch Day continue to impact our future entrepreneurs.
If you have any questions, please reach out to Frankie Quasarano at frankie.quasarano@ja.org

JA Pitch Day is a competition where qualified student teams who participated in a 2019-2020 JA Company Program from the Michigan Great Lakes region will be pitching their business plans to local entrepreneurs and business professionals. These select students have worked diligently alongside their peers, dedicated volunteers and educators for an entire semester to ensure they successfully transformed a need within their community into a product or service.

To capitalize on the students' talents, determination, and promising leadership abilities, JA Pitch Day will consist of several professional development activities, networking opportunities, prizes and more. The three main parts of the day include a Student Business Pitch, Student EXPO, and a Vendor Fair. Students will walk away from this event with the utmost confidence, a deeper understanding of business, and the satisfaction that they put their best foot forward.
