The JADE Spring Conference is the main international Junior Enterprise event in Europe, bringing together over 300 Junior Entrepreneurs from over 14 countries in the continent, as well as Brazil and Tunisia. In 2017, we are celebrating a very special year for the network: the 25th anniversary of JADE and the 50th of the Junior Enterprise concept. The conference will not be looking only in the future but also relate back to the long legacy of the movement and derivate how we can build on this legacy to make a brighter future. Therefore, the event will be themed “Co-‐create the future. Celebrate the past, act today, shape our tomorrow.” –-‐ with a focus on the power of youth assuming a leadership role in shaping the society of the future.

The event will take place from Thursday, March 2ndt, to March 5th in Brussels: on the first day, an opening ceremony will kick off the event, with a Panel Discussion in which the main actors of the European scene will be present – the European Commission, the European Parliament, the private sector, experienced entrepreneurs and think tanks from the EU. The Opening will also see the participation of highlight Keynote Speakers.

During the following days, the Junior Entrepreneurs will have the chance to foster their skills development with dedicated workshops delivered by the event’s partners, as well as by experienced professionals; furthermore, they will be able to expand their network at international level.

On the last day, after workshops and skills trainings by chosen multipliers of the network, a closing ceremony will take place where students will have the possibility to recapture the learned besides listening to inspiring speaches. The Gala Dinner will also take place on this last day. It will also be the occasion to award the best junior enterprise in the network with the delivery of the JADE Excellence Awards 2017.

The JADE Spring Conference represents therefore a unique event gathering in Brussels the professionals of tomorrow.
