With the support and guidance of local business volunteer consultants, the JA Entrepreneurship Summit will push high school students to think out of the box and develop creative solutions. Over the course of five days, students will be presented with a business challenge and will work in teams to develop solutions that they will ultimately pitch Shark Tank-style. Throughout the summit, students will participate in mini-workshops and challenges that develop both technical skills and soft skills. These skills are not only important to being a successful entrepreneur but also prepare students to meet the demands of a rapidly changing economy in a variety of professions and careers.
