TPBOC Judges Jr. Achievement Student Entrepreneurship Challenge
Every year, more than 1,000 high school students in Southern California operate their own business partnership with Junior Achievement (JA). The JA Student Entrepreneurship Challenge (JASEC) gives these students an opportunity to share their accomplishments, learn from successful entrepreneurs and seasoned business professionals, and compete with their peers for special incentives.
The 2011 competition, held on April 29th, brought these students together to present their original business plans and ideas to a panel of judges. The Private Bank's CEO, David Misch, was invited to be one of 13 judges on the panel that listened to the presentations. His judging helped determine the teams that would advance to the JA National competition in Washington, D.C.
Junior Achievement President Gary Hickman, shown above with the winning team, said that Misch's experience as a CEO added much value to the process. Eagle Eye, from Chaminade High School, won 'Student Company of the Year'. Their business provides videography, scouting, highlight production and athlete marketing services for coaches and players. This dynamic team is eager to attend the North American JA Company of the Year national competition in Washington, D.C. this month.
"It was incredible to witness the next generation of business leaders from Southern California share their unique ideas. Their poise and intelligence was quite impressive. I was honored to be a part of this endeavor to support emerging entrepreneurs," said Misch.
