The JE Concept

The Junior Enterprise movement was born in Paris in 1967, with the foundation of the first Junior Enterprise at the prestigious ESSEC University. The phenomenon spread in a very short time and in 1969 the first national confederation of the Junior Enterprise was founded.

In the ’80s the model consolidates and begins to cross over from France to the other nations of the world: throughout Europe and in Brazil, where today the movement is experiencing great growth.

 

A non-profit, non-political, non-religious legal entity composed and managed entirely by students coming from institutions of higher education. A Junior Enterprise gives students the opportunity to put their theoretical knowledge into practice through the realization of projects and studies required by companies, institutions or individuals. Professionalism and quality-orientation are the bases of a Junior Enterprise’s activity.

The pillars of our Strategy

Value

Private cooperation and alumni management: two tools to be used to have the JEurs recognized at institutional level.
Working on a movement to be proud of and integrated in, through knowledge sharing and initiatives such as Shadow Manager to bring all JEurs closer to big companies.

Sustainability

Ensure a solid future and a growing trend to all JEs aligning them to the quality standards of the Italian and European Confederation. The Audit Area and JADE Italia Academy are the two hubs to achieve this goal. Investing in enlargement aiming for a continuous growth of the movement.

Impact

Entrepreneurship is the value that better represents the movement.
Generate impact on the outside, externalizing the entrepreneurial spirit of JEurs is one of the objectives to make the value of the network recognized.
In line with JADE’s strategy, there are three Sustainable Development Goals we are working on: Quality Education, Decent Work and Economic Growth, Partnership for the Goals
