Our Confederations

Our History

The first Junior Enterprise was founded in 1967 in France .

However, only in 2006 was created a global cooperation agreement signed between the European and Brazilian Confederations, which led to the creation of the Junior Enterprise World Conference (JEWC).

In JEWC 2016, the second-ever JE Global Forum was held.

National leaders united to discuss the next steps for the International Network and the main resolution was the foundation of the JE Global Council as a collaboration platform within the founder members. Two years later, in 2018, it was decided that the JE Global Council would be renamed as Junior Enterprises Global, reflecting how the organization grew beyond the initial council in order to better deliver its work.

Our Actions
