Company Of The Year Competition

The JA Company of the Year Competition is Africa's premier pitch competition for high school-aged youth. It is one of six competitions conducted by regions around the world. In 2010, the first ever Africa Region JA Company of the Year Competition was held in Nairobi, Kenya.

The 3 day competition brings together student teams (aged 15-19) from countries across Africa to compete for cash and prizes in this contest of business skills, ingenuity and innovation. The students are judged by professionals from all works of life who take part in the competition as judges, coaches and mentors, all with the intention of elevating the students' understanding of business and enterprise. Africa's economies are not creating as many jobs as we are graduating young people from our schools. Many youth are going on to find employment primarily through entrepreneurship. By teaching them the essentials of entrepreneurship earlier on in their academic careers, we better prepare them for success in their efforts. Be investing in and rewarding their efforts, we encourage them to forge ahead.
