Uskalla Yrittää 2019
Nuori Yrittäjyys ry (Junior Achievement Finland) organizes the Uskalla Yrittää final starring over 220 students and their 85 JA student companies. The final gathers the most entrepreneurial students in Finland to a two days event in Helsinki 8-9.5.2019.
The students participating in the final have during this academic year ran their student companies that operate with real money.
These companies have been formed as a part of their studies in the JA Company Program on the 9th grade of elementary school and on the upper secondary level, and in the JA Start Up Program on the higher education level.
The final is the national competition for these programs and the winners of the upper secondary level and on higher education level will represent Finland in the competition for the European championship in the summer 2019.
From the regional semifinals to the national final
The companies in the final competition have been chosen through regional semifinals to represent their region and school in the national final. The semifinals are organized all over Finland. See the semifinal schedule and check out the entrepreneurs from your region before the final.
The best companies in Finland are chosen by a jury of professionals from the business life. The jury will get to know the operation and teams of the companies for two days during the national final.
