LONDON – JULY 11, 2017 – Bullhorn®, the cloud computing company that helps staffing and recruiting organisations transform their businesses, has collaborated with JA Worldwide, one of the world’s largest youth-serving NGOs.

Through the delivery of hands-on, blended learning in financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurship, JA Worldwide empowers young people to grow their entrepreneurial ideas, hone their work skills, manage their earnings, and secure better lives for themselves, their families, and their communities.

As part of the collaboration, Bullhorn’s founder and CEO, Art Papas, will be speaking at the opening of the first European Entrepreneurship Summit, hosted by JA Europe, one of six JA regional operating centres, in Brussels on July 11.

The European Entrepreneurship Education Summit will gather academics and experts in entrepreneurship education, policymakers, government officials, educators, business leaders, and NGO representatives to discuss new trends in entrepreneurship education, make policy recommendations, and showcase new innovations in this space.

Speaking ahead of his address, Papas states: “As an entrepreneur myself, I am incredibly excited to be supporting the invaluable work done by JA in inspiring and preparing young people to succeed in the global economy.”

The summit will also host the 28th JA Europe Company of the Year Competition, where the best young entrepreneurs from across Europe will be celebrated.

Papas continues: “I’m thrilled to be part of the first European Entrepreneurship Education Summit here in Brussels and look forward to discussing what more can be done, as well as celebrating the young entrepreneurs of today.”
