-Ryan Paul, 2017 JA Entrepreneurship Summit Participant
The 2016 Entrepreneurship Summit was an absolutely transformative experience and the highlight of my summer! Over the span of a few days I had the opportunity to learn about the basics of entrepreneurship through a great balance of activities ranging from networking and team building exercises to developing business solutions to a real world problem. I especially enjoyed the informal and lively interactions with the program mentors, workshop speakers and student participants. Although the program culminated in a competition, everyone was rooting for each other’s success and it left me with a great sense of accomplishment. I’m grateful for the opportunity to pursue my passion and I can’t wait to participate again!
