Students fostering entrepreneurship since 1967
What is Junior Enterprise?
A Junior Enterprise is a non-profit organization, formed and managed exclusively by university students, which provides services for companies, institutions, and individuals. Junior Enterprises are similar to real companies, with the main goal of enhancing the learning of their members through practical experiences.
