2019 JA Business Week Projects

First Year Students:

Students attending JA Business Week for the first time will design a new product and marketing plan for Otter Products Outdoor line and increase product awareness in this category. Students will gain access to top-level industry professionals and local entrepreneurs, and see the inner workings of OtterBox’s engineering, testing, and production processes.  JA is grateful for the sponsorship of this project from Fort Collins-based OtterProducts and The OtterCares Foundation.

returning students:

As they continue developing the skills and business concepts from their first year, returning students will also take a deeper look at marketing tactics, revenue streams, and overall financial competence. Additional details, including sponsor partnerships, will be announced this spring.
