Junior Achievement Business Plan Challenge Competition
When: Thursday, April 22, 2021
Time: 12:00 AM
The JA Business Plan Challenge is an opportunity that allows young people to
demonstrate their understanding of business fundamentals, the importance of
creatively marketing to a target audience, and the power of persuading
potential investors during a live pitch. The competition is open to high school
students involved in JA Be Entrepreneurial Program. Over the course of the JA
in-class program, students participate in mini-workshops, led by mentors from
the business community, and work to develop solutions/businesses that they
will ultimately pitch to a panel of local entrepreneurs.
