Creating tomorrow’s entrepreneurs

HP teams up with Junior Achievement to foster entrepreneurial energy and socially responsible business practices in students around the world.

In the US, HP and its employees have a long history of supporting JA classroom tutoring engagements, Whole School programs and JA-in-a-Day. Beginning in 2009, HP will partner with JA-Americas to support the HP Responsible Business Competition, as part of a global expansion of JA's Company of the Year program. Expanding upon the highly successful HP Responsible Business Competition in Europe over the last several years, the Americas region competition will be open to student teams who have entered their JA student companies for the JA-Americas Company of the Year, promoting and recognizing ideas students develop for socially responsible businesses.

Additionally, HP and JA Worldwide have worked together for 13 years to host the Global Business Challenge, which encourages teams of high school and university students to act as chief executive officers of virtual companies. Teams compete by making decisions that affect the profitability, sustainability and market share of their virtual enterprise. The final round has featured students from around the world and the annual event has taken place near major HP sites both in the U.S. and internationally.
