OWN IT! YOUR BUSINESS. YOUR FUTURE. YOUR LIFE.


Students will earn 1.5 college credit hours through UCDenver while learning what it takes to be a true entrepreneur.

They’ll hear from some of the most successful entrepreneurs and business leaders from across the state as they consider a path for their future. The week will culminate with a competition where one team will be crowned the JA Titan of Business!

Students will work in teams to compete as CEOs in the phone industry, experiencing firsthand how an organization evaluates alternatives, makes decisions, analyzes the outcomes of those decisions, and then strategize what to do next.

The program will take place at the Jake Jabs Center for Entrepreneurship in downtown Denver.
At the completion of the program, students will receive 1.5 college credit hours through University of Colorado Denver.
