Athletes to Entrepreneurs & JA Executive Business Challenge
When: Thursday, November 8, 2018
Where: Fluno Center, 601 University Avenue, Madison, WI
Time: 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us for Junior Achievement's Executive Business Challenge featuring JA Titan, a hands-on computer simulated business strategy tournament where community business leaders team up to compete in a business scenario to run a business and sell a product. During the tournament, teams make decisions such as choosing and changing product price, developing a marketing strategy, maintaining inventory volumes, and determining research and development investments. All of this takes place under timed rounds, so smart business decisions need to be made quickly. First, second and third place winning teams will be announced at the end of the evening.
