JA Europe Enterprise Challenge is saved by going digital for the first time

JA Europe – a member of JA Worldwide – is dedicated to preparing millions of young people for employment and entrepreneurship. Every year, its flagship event is the Enterprise Challenge, which brings together student start-up companies from across Europe to present what they’ve created to a panel of business leaders and judges for awards that recognise innovation. When the COVID-19 pandemic threatened the live event’s survival, JA Europe partnered with Avanade and used Microsoft Teams to transform the Enterprise Challenge into a virtual experience.

“Cancelling the event was really our last resort. We didn’t want to do that, and with Avanade’s help, we didn’t have to.”

Iris Lapinski Director of Technology, JA Europe

Avanade’s team of volunteers from around the world pulled together to create the technical environment for the digital Enterprise Challenge on Teams in just a few months. This ensured that JA Europe’s student participants still got to showcase their work and provide inspiration for the future.
