It’s that time of the year again! This Saturday 23rd March, our famous #NYF19 (National Youth Fair) is taking place once more! Indeed, we will be taking over the 3 floors at The Point Shopping Mall for the whole day. #NYF19 is a great occasion for our students to sell and showcase their creativity, ideas and innovations.
As a matter of fact, this year we have over 120 young entrepreneurs! 18 Companies set up from 5 different 6th Form colleges, and 7 StartUps from 2 Universities! Ideas and product ranging from Eco-Friendly solutions, pet-loving products, educational platforms and even social campaign based products! Nevertheless, the day is not just about showcasing and selling – the two respective Judging Panels will be on the lookout for the most innovative and eye-catching solutions! In fact, the competitive journey is just beginning. It all leads to the final top Companies and StartUps to present at the classic JAYE Finals and Awards Night on May 4th.
Therefore, make sure to come by if you want to meet these budding entrepreneurs, support them by purchasing a product, participating in their research, get to know them… You will even have the opportunity to win a voucher for outlets at The Point!
Moreover, the Minister of Education, Dr. Evarist Bartolo will also be visiting us to find out about the journey of these young entrepreneurs.
Besides, the JAYE Programmes would not be possible without the volunteering Mentors and all our corporate and programme sponsors! #NYF19 is also supported by SignIt, Cinnabon, MVintage and Organix Beauty.
We’re looking forward to see what all these talented young entrepreneurs are bringing to The Point this Saturday!
