JA Entrepreneurial Youth Summit

JA Entrepreneurial Youth Summit

When: TBD
Where: Elmira High School
JA will leverage its curriculum, JA Be Entrepreneurial®, and explore foundational concepts such as market and need analysis, design thinking, research, funding, and developing a business model canvas.

Mentored by current entrepreneurs and industry experts in our local economy, students will work in small “incubator” groups throughout the day learning the fundamentals of bringing ideas to fruition and ultimately pitching their business concepts.

Through collaboration and partnership, the students will be exposed to the entrepreneurial “ecosystem” in our community, and accelerate their entrepreneurial skills and business ideas. Students will also be able to submit relevant business ideas for the JAUSA Social Entrepreneurial Challenge Spring 2024.
