What is National Entrepreneurship Month?
National Entrepreneurship Month is officially celebrated each November in the United States and is comprised of Global Entrepreneurship Week, National Entrepreneurs’ Day, Global Women’s Entrepreneurship Day, and other entrepreneurial activities across the country. The purpose is to not only celebrate entrepreneurs and their contributions to our society, but to inspire the next generation of innovators, risk takers, and business leaders. In November, Junior Achievement will partner with numerous organizations and businesses, to engage entrepreneurs and small business owners to inspire high school students across the country with the“JA Launch Lesson.” 

What is the JA Launch Lesson?
The JA Launch Lesson is a 50-minute educational experience built around the theme of entrepreneurship that creates a point-of-entry for students, volunteers, and educators. It is delivered locally by entrepreneurs in classrooms, after-school facilities, and other student venues around the United States during National Entrepreneurship Month. Entrepreneurs are given a one-page guide that gives them the opportunity to connect with students, provide relevant information about their company and entrepreneurial journey, and share advice and next steps for students who are interested in starting their own business.
