Students and their teacher prepare for the guest entrepreneur by researching the visiting entrepreneur and his or her company, and preparing questions they would like him or her to answer.
Students listen to an introduction from the guest speaker (entrepreneur), participate in an ice-breaker activity, learn about the entrepreneur's company, experiences and the steps to become an entrepreneur, then spend time asking questions and having a discussion with the guest speaker.
Students and educators are encouraged to take a brief survey to help JA improve on the students' and educators' experiences.
