JA Pivot & Pitch

October 28-29, 2017 & Spring: April 28 & 29

This will be a shark tank style showcase where students will present their business plans to a panel of judges. These students have been working to perfect their business plans and presentation skills in order to take the title of “The 2017 JA Company of the Year”.

All of the presenting students participated in JA Company Program. The JA Company program unlocks the innate ability in high school students to fill a need or solve a problem in their community by launching a business venture and unleashing their entrepreneurial spirit. The program focuses on Company Ops, the majority of meeting time, where students build and manage their business. Meeting-specific, student-friendly materials and resources increase student interaction and emphasize JA’s experiential approach to learning. During JA Pivot & Pitch the students will presented what they have been working on and receive feedback.

The judges will have time to ask questions and then they will select The 2017 JA Company of the Year.
