An avid supporter of Junior Achievement, Ken Jurina, our President, recently donned his judge’s hat to lend his business expertise to some of Edmonton’s best and brightest Company Program students.
As a part of the day long trade show, competition and taping, Ken spent a good portion of the day evaluating business plans and financials from the top companies. Their task was to determine who they thought should go on to represent Alberta in the televised event The Big Pitch set to air later this summer on CBC Alberta.
To be witness to the creativity, passion and resourcefulness of these students is a great added bonus for everyone involved in this fun event. You can’t help but be inspired by the enthusiasm with which these students conceptualize, market and deliver their products. These aspiring young entrepreneurs are on top of their game.
Tune in to the special on CBC later this summer, and check back here as we’ll be highlighting the winning company!
