Celebrating 20 years of JADE at SJM 2012

JADE 20th anniversary

The 2012 edition of the Summer Summer JADE Meeting successfully took place in Mamaia, Romania and gathered more than 140 participants under the topic of Intrapreneurship. Organised by JADE Romania and JADE, the event brought together European Junior Entrepreneurs and a wide range of key speakers, from entrepreneurs and business leaders to European Commission executives, for 2 days of workshops and lectures.

This year, the event also hosted the celebration of the 20th JADE anniversary, with festivities starting with the ceremonial cutting of the JADE cake by Daniel Falcon, President, and followed by a party night sponsored by Grolsch.

SJM 2012 was the opportunity to current’s JADE executive team to officially hand over their positions to the new team, while JADE Romania also presented their new executive board. The General Assembly that was held allowed the current Board to present its annual report, as well as it was an occasion for International Managers to meet and discuss strategic orientations with JADE executives for the year to come.

Through JADE events, the network reaches higher international integration and cohesion, as most of the participants claimed to have engaged proactive follow up after the event.

Next JADE Meeting will be held in Toulouse, France and will be organized by ESCadrille, a French JE from the 12th to the 14th of October.
