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 problem 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.
