JA Europe Enterprise Challenge 2020
IS going virtual!
HOSTED BY JA GREECE
For the first time ever, the JA Europe Enterprise Challenge 2020 will bring together student Start Ups for a two-day competition, 24 – 26 June, in a virtual competition hosted by JA Greece.
The competition is JA Europe’s annual celebration of the achievements of its Start Up Programme for students and their companies from across Europe. At this event, the winning companies from all participating countries will proudly present their businesses and key takeaways from their experiences.
In the last academic year, more than 17,000 students from 500+ higher education institutions across Europe have participated in the Start Up Programme. Supporting European goals of improving youth employability and the start-up ecosystem, the programme fosters key competences to ensure that they are prepared for success after university.
Moving from ideas to action, students gain crucial insights into self-employment, business creation, risk-taking and coping with adversity with the support of specially trained teachers and mentorship from business volunteers. The countless alumni who continue to grow their innovations and ideas, turning them into sustainable businesses after completing the programme show the long-term success of the programme.

JA Start Up Programme
The Start Up Programme gives post-secondary students (aged 19 to 30) the opportunity to experience running their own company, showing them how to use their talents to set up their own business.
Students also develop attitudes and skills necessary for personal success and employability and they learn how to run a business themselves. They gain key understanding in self-employment, business creation, risk-taking and coping with adversity, all with the support of experienced business volunteers.
