Trading on an international stage

Three Young Enterprise companies from the UK took part in last month’s JA-YE Europe’s Austrian Trade Fair held in Vienna. The companies had all taken part in the Company Programme which gives students, aged 15-18, the opportunity to set up and a run a company with mentoring from business volunteers. Showcasing their products were Snap ‘n’ Save from New-Bridge Integrated College in Northern Ireland; Fusion from Surbiton High School in the South East and Cookie Mad from Wigan Youth Zone in the North West who also won the Public Choice Award.

Here are a few of our favourite shots from the events. The full album is available on the JA-YE Marketplace Vienna 2015 Facebook page.

Young Enterprise is one of 39 member countries of JA-YE Europe, Europe’s largest provider of entrepreneurship education programmes. JA-YE Europe organises the three day-long International Trade Fairs for students taking part in the Company Programme to present their innovative ideas and sell their products to the public.
