Who are these young entrepreneurs, innovators and leaders? What is their story?
How has their entrepreneurial experience impacted their lives?
Johan H. Andresen and his company FERD have been long-time supporters of Junior Achievement. In particular, Johan has been instrumental in developing schemes to support and promote JA Alumni as they transition from education into the economy. Ferd has an extensive involvement in social entrepreneurship.
“By value we mean far more than just financial return – value is also created through personal development and growth. JA is making an impact on thousands of young people all over Europe every day. Just as I have been, the next generation will be inspired by them, and so will our politicians, the business community, the education community and even parents.”
