The Junior Achievement Titan Business Challenge is a two-part event, consisting of a Student Competition held during the day, Thursday, March 1, 2017 and an Adult Competition the following day, Friday, March 2 after work hours. Most importantly, it is a business strategy tournament using the JA Titan program - an online business manufacturing simulation program. Each team acts as the Senior Management Team of their company and is responsible for developing business strategies and making "do or die" decisions quarter by quarter. The competition is uniquely designed to unleash creativity, test leadership skills and demonstrate the competitive nature of the free enterprise system. Teams go head-to-head as they strive to make informed, intelligent business decisions in running their own global, virtual business. The success or failure of the company depends on how well these decisions are made.
This year the adult fundraising event will consist of business and global marketplace trivia will take place at Davenport University's Downtown Campus, 45 Ottawa Ave. NE, Grand Rapids. Doors open at 5:00PM and event starts at 6:00. Proceeds from registration benefits JA programming. Prizes for top three teams, silent auction, and networking.
