The Junior Entrepreneurs of Minnesota (jEM) Summer Program was created in 2009 by OBCED to inspire youth from the Twin Cities to pursue entrepreneurship and develop a relationship with the University of Minnesota. The goal is to expose them to leadership development initiatives and exciting learning opportunities.


The objectives of jEM are to:

•Assist in the incubation of youth enterprise(s) in a supportive environment
•Inspire the next generation of leaders in the Twin Cities
•Foster and develop talented youth by leveraging University resources
•Promote a knowledge ecosystem that is reflective of the diversity of the students
•Connect small business communities with intellectually curious youths
•Recruit aspiring high school students to the University of Minnesota
