For four months, the project leaders are accompanied, supported and supervised by (local) Juniors Entreprises to help them establish solid foundations: business plan, market study, financial analysis and so on…
At the end of this preparation period, the candidates present their projects in front of a jury and an audience of more than 250 people and the winner is awarded an incubation and a financial prize to make his dreams come true!
In addition to the pitching of the project leaders, the day will be marked by lectures, success stories and debates around a theme, this year, “Student and Entrepreneur”, and the issues facing Tunisia today, but it is also an opportunity to meet several professionals and influential people.
For this fourth edition, the organizing teams, JEY Entrepreneurship and the Junior Sup’Com Enterprise promise renewal. In addition to the winner, a candidate will be awarded a prize according to the votes of the public.
