We already know the name of the winners of the third edition of the Public School Entrepreneurship Forum organized by the Junior Achievement Foundation and the Madrid City Council through Madrid Emprende, and which was held this morning online.

During the 2019-2020 academic year, more than 2,400 young people from Madrid have participated in this program, creating a total of 600 mini-businesses thanks to the mentoring of professional volunteers and the support of teachers. Of this total, 13 projects have been selected for their innovative nature and their viability to participate in the Third Edition of the Public School Entrepreneurship Forum. 

Through a digital platform, the selected young people have defended their ideas and have answered the questions of the jury who, after watching the promotional videos that the students have created during the development of the program and analyzing their business plans, have interviewed them to find out more details about your entrepreneurial ideas to be able to select the winning team.
