The JA Startup Accelerator is a Junior Achievement high school virtual startup accelerator for the graduates of JA Be Entrepreneurial and the JA Company Program and the startup businesses of JA high school students.
Through the Accelerator, we hope to encourage, expand,and support business building on the part of high school juniors and seniors. Just as in baseball there is a “Farm System” to groom ballplayers for entry into the “Big Leagues” so too the JA Startup Accelerator hopes
to prepare, launch, and support the worthwhile ideas of young entrepreneurs as they explore and embark upon turning their visions into reality and building businesses of their own.
- Continue the work of JA high school programming
- Foster student business startups
- Encourage entrepreneurship

Some questions to answer:

- What should be the Program’s beta test scope?
- How do we measure success?
