About JA Enterprise Challenge
The JA Europe Enterprise Challenge brings together the best student companies at post-secondary level (aged 18 to 30) from all across Europe. Those teams have won the national competitions of the JA Start Up Programme.
A special jury composed of business representatives and experts in entrepreneurship will assess all Start Ups and evaluate their value proposition (financial, social or cultural) as well as its potential to grow.
Phases of the Competition
We are currently working on the technical platform in collaboration with our partners, therefore please note that the stages of the competition can be slightly modified. For instance, we are looking for options such as virtual stands or company website in order to replace the trade fair. However, this procedure is yet to be confirmed.
