JADE Italia is the Italian Confederation of Junior Enterprises. Founded in 1992 as CIJE (Italian Confederation of Junior Enterprise), in 2004 it was the first of the 14 European confederations to take the name “JADE” internationally. The confederation aims to coordinate, promote and expand the Italian Junior Enterprises movement; promote the continuous expansion of the movement and maintain contacts between the Italian and International networks. The objective is to guarantee the professional and personal growth of all the JEs associated with particular attention to the following aspects: problem solving, entrepreneurship, teamworking, soft skills and, above all, learning by doing. The network is composed by 18 Junior Enterprises and 5 Junior Initiatives which meet on the occasion of three national events: Network Day (or JADE Italia Day), JADE Italia May Meeting and JADE Italia October Meeting.
JADE stands for Junior Association for the Development in Europe and was born in 1992. In 1967 the first JE (in France) was born and in 1969 the first (French) confederation. It is an umbrella organization containing more than 300 Junior Enterprises entirely managed by students from more than 280 universities that are located in 15 European countries. Following the motto “learning-by-doing”, the Junior Entrepreneurs build the bridge between university and workplace. Through the development of entrepreneurial activities, the JEurs are able to achieve a turnover of over 16 million euros a year and to involve over 28 thousand students, thus leaving a significant impact on the local and national business world. The network meets annually on 4 occasions which are: JADE Spring Conference, JADE May Conference, Summer JADE Conference, JADE Autumn Conference. Furthermore, once every two years the Junior Enterprise World Council is organized.
“Different languages, different ideas, different habits, different points of view but one purpose only: make the most important JADE event possible!
Being part of the JSC staff was an amazing experience that made me aware about the hugeness of our network and the impact we can generate.”
– Maria Teresa Galati (Staff JSC 2018)
