SO... What is a Junior Enterprise?
The concept of Junior Enterprises aims to provide students of higher education with an unique hands-on experience experience. While still studying at the university, students manage their own non-profit enterprises.
These companies, called Junior Enterprises, offer consulting services to the market, in relation to their fields of study (Business, Design, Engineering...).
‍The students sell, manage and execute these services. This gives them hands-on entrepreneurial  professional experience and the opportunity to impact their clients' businesses.
