Let's face it: it's frightening to go out on a limb to start your own business. You know what's even more terrifying? Doing so when you're a teen.

Yet every year, high schoolers in the JANCO footprint do just that, turning conceptual ideas into actual profit as part of the JA Company Program ®. Students spend a year learning about business planning, market segmentation, proto-typing and product manufacturing, and finances. We are proud to share information on the 2023-24 JA Companies and the upcoming JA Entrepreneurship Challenge & Expo.

Dive into the 23-24 JA Student Companies

The heart of the JA Company Program lies in the student companies, where young minds come together to transform ideas into tangible products and services. From tech startups to eco-friendly initiatives, the diversity of these ventures is bound to captivate your imagination. The program cultivates essential skills such as teamwork, critical thinking, and financial literacy, setting the stage for a new generation of business leaders.
