Junior Entrepreneurs are Truly Remarkable

Over 300 pupils and their teachers were in attendance at the first ever Junior Entrepreneur Programme (JEP) County Showcase Day in The Knightsbrook Hotel in Co. Meath on April 16th, 2015. Magnificent examples of entrepreneurship were showcased, giving participating pupils and teachers the opportunity to see the classroom businesses that emerged since the 2015 programme started in January.

Throughout the 10-week JEP programme, pupils learn about entrepreneurship, brainstorm ideas, decide on an idea and work in teams to turn the idea into a reality. With the guidance and support of their teacher, classmates, principal and local community, the participating classes create something truly remarkable.

Projects showcased on the day ranged from colourful key rings and handy cookbooks to instant baking jars along and an ‘Agrisafe Gate Clip’. The atmosphere was electric as the Junior Entrepreneurs visited the other exhibitors and learned about their projects.

John Purdy, county sponsor for JEP in Meath, CEO of leading IT services company Ergo and finalist for this year’s EY Entrepreneur Of The Year programme, is delighted to be involved; “The presentation’s here today were inspirational, I was overwhelmed by the creativity and positivity shown. The students who participate in this 10 week programme get the opportunity to develop a range of skills from problem solving, to creative thinking and consumer awareness. Through this great programme, I have seen first-hand how bringing out the entrepreneurial skills of young people can ignite their imaginations.”

The JEP programme has been running for five years and has now been rolled out nationally as well as being piloted in the UK, with 10,500 children over 431 schools participating in the programme since January 2015. As the Junior Entrepreneur Programme grows, so does the exceptional calibre of these Junior Entrepreneurs.

The programme is primarily aimed at 5th and 6th class students and runs over a 10-12 week period. JEP provides everything that is required to run the programme including a step-by-step teacher’s guide.
