JA Europe Company of the Year Competition4 - 6 July 2019 Location: Lille, France
This year we'll celebrate the 30th anniversary of the JA Europe Company of the Year Competition in France. The event will be combined with the centennial celebration of the JA Company programme at worldwide level and the 2nd European Entrepreneurship Education Summit.
In Lille, all of the JA organisations in Europe will celebrate their best 200+ young entrepreneurs. A high-level panel of 10 judges will examine the contestants.
They'll evaluate their approach to communication, teamwork, problem-solving, objective-setting, planning and review, administration and financial systems, personnel management, product development, customer focus, marketing and sales, as well as financial results. How the students have developed their business skills is also assessed.
As of today, there are more than 20,000 Company Programme student companies in the JA network and those we will see in Lille are the very best of them. They've come up through the ranks at the national level. Their business idea and their strategy as a team has worked its magic past several layers of judges.
