Student companies on display at Junior Achievement trade show

Students gathered for a business meetingYoung entrepreneurs are hosting their own trade show next week at Lipscomb University.

Nine student-led companies from Metro high schools will show off the companies they’ve spent weeks building through the Junior Achievement Company Program. This was no easy project. These teams developed business plans, elected officers, sold stock, developed and marketed a product and dealt with investors.

Now they get to share that work with all of you. Drop by the trade show next Tuesday, March 12 at Lipscomb’s Ezell Center. The companies will be on display from 10-11:30 a.m.
