SPARKS ARE FLYING IN THE TANK!

See the Next Generation of CEOs and Meet JA’s Budding Entrepreneurs!

JA Fellows Spark Tank Finale is the culminating event of Junior Achievement of South Florida’s 8 month long high school entrepreneurship program. The Top 3 of 20 company teams will compete for the coveted title of “JA Company of the Year”. 

JA student teams start with an idea for a business and build and run their business over the school year. Teams are coached and mentored by business leaders as they secure investors, source, market and sell their products. Company Teams participate in a series of competitions including JA Video Commercial, JA Stage Presentation, JA Interviews and JA Signature Awards. 

At the Spark Tank Finale, each team will make its final presentation to SHARKS who will judge the results of each company and determine the JA Company of the Year. Attendees at the event will select the People’s Choice Award team winner.
