  3. compete if you want at the Uskalla Yrittää festival
  4. network
  5. and of course – earn money

There are tens of thousands of young people in Finland who have visited or are currently performing some of the programmes offered by the Junior Achievement association (JA). Are you one of them?

Entrepreneurial skills apply to everyone
