Entrepreneur Hub-MacMillan Learning Lab

The Entrepreneur Hub gives employees an opportunity to launch a NEW business in JA BizTown. Employees will decide if they will create designed baseball caps or coffee mugs, using manufacturing equipment, to fill a need in JA BizTown. Employees produce their own branding (name, slogan, logo) using computer apps. A small amount of product will be manufactured and given to citizens who choose to invest in their new business start-up!
