  4. 4. CDP Auditors Training weekend - Last 16th and 17th of January, in ING HeadQuarters, occurred the Confederations‘ Development Programme (CDP) training session. After having successfully passed the whole selection process, 8 highly motivated Junior-Entrepreneurs have been trained to the audit by the European Organisation of Quality (EOQ) and by the CDP team. They learned the basis of being an auditor in order to get the right information using the right questions. They have also been informed on the context and origins of the CDP and on the way they will help JADE within this project. JADE HOUSE Fundraising team – strategy and teambuilding weekend JADE ExBo is restructuring the fundraising of JADE. Under the leadership of Moritz Beck, Head of Private Cooperation, a team of five took on the fundraising challenge: Sebastian Bette (in Brussels) and Dominik Klimmek from Germany, Matthieu Le Bris and Guilhem Moulin from France, Guilio Sciarappa from Italy. The kick-off for the fundraising team took part in JADE House, for three productive and motivating days. After discovering the cultural differences and how to use them best for the team, they created the 2010 fundraising strategy after understanding the full background of JADE. In addition, the team was trained at a practical workshop with simulated business sales meetings with video recording. And after all this, they experienced the legendary night live of Brussels, thus building the social scope of the team. Good Bye Ticão and Vini! Welcome Luiz, Miriam and Naone! Well, they did a really nice job, but now they are going back to Brazil. Tiago Mitraud and Vinícius Carraro, the Brazilian Ambassadors, worked for the past six months as Senior Project BRAZILIAN CORNER Managers at JADE. Their main tasks were the CDP Project, Enlargement, benchmarking and others. Now they will continue their work in the Brazilian Network where Tiago Mitraud is now the President of Brasil Junior and Vinicius Carraro is the Head of Internal Management Department (for the new Brasil Junior Board that started its term in January 2010). Luiz Gonçalves, Miriam Ascenso and Naone Garcia are now the new Brazilian Ambassadors. As Senior Project Managers of JADE they are already working in the CDP Project (Luiz), Management of Jade Spring Meeting (Miriam) and JE.NET Project (Naone) and soon they will also manage new projects. As Brazilian Ambassadors their main tasks are: gather the best JADE practices; maintain and consolidate the partnership between Brasil Junior and JADE; organize the Brazilian commission that will go to the JEWC and represent Brasil Junior in Europe.

Better promoting the Junior Enterprise concept – JADE France rebranding The institutional logo is going from red to blue: red for Juniors, blue for the institutional aspect of companies; the young and dynamic network echoes backs to the spirit of entrepreneurship and professionalism. The transition is done through the first letter of the word “enterprise”, an “e” that is the heart of the change of color with a circle to call up the notion of network that enforces each Junior-Enterprise. The Willing to better promote the whole expression is written on an upward diagonal, entrepreneurship spirit in French symbolism of expansion, optimism and dynamism, like the Universities and the National network of Junior Enterprises are. nearly 140 Junior Enterprises, JADE The signature « Révélateurs d’esprit d’entreprise » is France is renovating its visual identity the right way up, it is clear: using one’s entrepreneurship during the 40th anniversary.

  6. 6. Lobbying - Promoting the Junior Enterprise Concept and ensuring the recognition of JE experience: the key objectives pursued by JADE on an institutional level. January 2010 brought a TOWARDS A STRONGER MOVEMENT great new wave of recognitions. Through the European Commission, JADE earned the right to revise policy documents related to Entrepreneurship education before it actually goes live. The reason for this decision was given shortly by a member of DG Enterprise: "JADE is one of the most important youth organisation in Brussels, and definitely the entrepreneurship leader in Europe". Looking into the new decade, JADE ExBo attended a few briefings on the strategy for EU 2020: Growth and Jobs. Moreover, Junior Enterprises are already mentioned surely and frequently in the new resolution of the European Council on the Youth framework as a part of the EU 2020 strategy. Last year, JADE was a key speaker at the UNESCO World Conference on Higher Education. 6 months later, the leading youth organisations of the World got together in Paris to discuss how to ensure access to high-quality education and easiness of education migration. JADE and Brasil Junior attended the event as the single body of the Junior Enterprise Movement, proposed many effective solutions, and the results are expected soon in the official communiqué by UNESCO. CDP updates - Our Junior Auditors are now visiting the Confederations and they will have to write a precise report with the help of the whole CDP team and the concerned Confederations in order to get a real overview of the situation. This information will be used to give guidelines to each Confederation for their development: by promoting knowledge exchange between them, JADE network will become stronger and stronger! The main feedbacks of the project will be given during the JADE Spring Meeting (5 th to 7th of March 2010). JE.net – the Jes exchange platform is itself a website, where each Confederation, Member State and Junior Enterprise (from JADE and Brasil Junior) will develop a profile, which will allow the sharing of international projects, knowledge, experience and even the exchange of members at international level! A mixture of a social networking webpage and a travel directory will ensure that your organisation has chosen the right partner for the international purpose wanted. The pilot test started in January 2010 and the official launch for all the Junior Enterprises will take place during Spring Meeting, in March 2010.
