Entrepreneur Hub-King Learning Lab

The Entrepreneur Hub gives employees an opportunity to launch a NEW business in JA BizTown. Employees decide on the product to manufacture, their branding (name, slogan, logo), and how their product will fill a need in the community.  Employees will use equipment and apps to manufacture their new retail product. (A small amount of product will be manufactured, and will be given to JA BizTown citizens who choose to invest in their new business start-up.)
