  3. 3. JA YE Enterprise Challenge 2010 3 1 - 4 July 2010 51 young entrepreneurs from across Europe are competing for the title of winner of JA-YE EUROPE ENTERPRISE CHALLENGE 2010, hosted by Junior Achievement Bulgaria The JA-YE EUROPE ENTERPRISE Challenge 2010 brings together the best student companies at the post-secondary level (aged 18- 30) from all across Europe. At this event, the national winners of all participating countries will proudly present the results of their young companies. During the stay in Bulgaria they will meet and compete with students from 10 European countries. The enterprising students have all been running a JA-YE company through the ‘Graduate Programme’ as part of their higher education courses. Their mission was to develop viable and sustainable business ideas with real investment potential. They have each received the support of their professors as well as guidance from volunteers from the business world. Each group has developed a company that offers real marketable products and/or services and they have all successfully dealt with the challenges of setting up and running a business. The financing of the enterprise and attracting investors are the key points. 13 teams, representing a wide range of industry areas, will arrive in Sofia (Bulgaria) and for two exciting days their challenge will be to sell their idea to a panel of potential “investors”, each of whom has a fictional 50000€ to spend. Their investment proposals target potential investors by outlining their strategy, projecting return on investment and a risk analysis. The teams will each make a public presentation showcasing their business idea and they will each then pitch their enterprises to experts from industry who will probe deeper into the proposals and challenge the students with questions. There will also be an exhibition of the companies where the public and judges can visit each stand. THE WINNER OF THE JA-YE EUROPE ENTERPRISE CHALLENGE 2010 WILL BE ANNOUNCED AT THE AWARD CEREMONY AND DINNER ON JULY 2ND.
