Junior Achievement will open entrepreneur lab in Embarc Collective


Junior Achievement of Tampa Bay is creating an entrepreneurship academy and lab with Embarc Collective, the innovation and startup hub slated to be finished by the end of the year in downtown Tampa.

The JA Entrepreneurship & Lab at Embarc Collective will educate and encourage middle and high school students within the region about entrepreneurship and innovation. While Junior Achievement currently has an entrepreneurial program, the new academy and lab will give it a home base and also access to real-life entrepreneurs. Students will also learn skills from the Junior Achievement staff and startup leaders including product evaluation, speaking, sales, leadership, creativity and teamwork.
