Business Bound

Presented by Junior Achievement and the Jake Jabs Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Colorado Denver

This summer, Junior Achievement and the Jake Jabs Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Colorado Denver are excited to present an exciting week-long experience for high school students, Business Bound!

Students will earn 1 college credit hour through CU Denver while learning what it takes to be an entrepreneur and run a successful business.

They will hear from successful entrepreneurs and business leaders from across the state as they consider a path for their future. The week will culminate with a competition where one team will be crowned the JA Titan of Business!
