The Junior Enterprise Concept

A Junior Enterprise is a non for-profit civil social organifor-profited and managed exclusively by undergraduate and postgraduate students of higher education, which provides services for companies, institutions, and society, under the guidance of teachers and professionals with the goal to consolidate and enhance the learning for their members. Junior Enterprises are similar to real companies, counting with the principles of corporate governance like management council and executive board, and own regulation.

JADE and the JE Network

JADE is the European Confederation of Junior Enterprises: non-profit umbrella organisation of more than 300 student-run businesses across 280 universities in 14 European countries. Following the motto "learning-by-doing", our students bridge the gap between academia and real business world. By running non-profit SMEs and being social entrepreneurs, the students turn over 16 million euro per year and involve more than 22,000 peers, thus leaving a significant impact on the local and national business world.
