The projects created by our young winners of the ‘Company Program’, Junior Achievement Worldwide’s flagship training course in business creation and management, are today recognized for their innovation during the various national competitions organized each year by INJAZ Al-Maghrib.
The latest recognition is that of the 10 Moroccan Junior Enterprises in the “high school” and “university” categories which stood out, among the 173 participants in the Regional Competitions by the quality and relevance of their projects. Creative ideas that fit perfectly into the dynamic of digital transformation imposed by the health crisis and that meet the real needs of consumers or professionals.
Among the 10 qualified Junior Enterprises, 9 were awarded, each in a field, by referent economic actors, partners of INJAZ Al-Maghrib and for the majority members of its Board of Directors. The objective of this approach is to reward our young budding entrepreneurs for their spirit of challenge, leadership and above all creativity.
