Great interest in creative industries at the JA fair

Great interest in creative industries at the JA fair

On 13 March, Sara Kulturhus in Skellefteå was transformed into a wonderful party venue for over 460 JA entrepreneurs. The fair, which attracted a lot of interest, was professionally organised as usual and had a clear focus on sustainable and creative business ideas.

The energy, commitment and level of innovation was high and the fact that so much focus was on sustainable solutions feels incredibly good. There were also many business ideas related to cultural and creative industries. This means that we hope for many new companies to join the incubator in the future," says Ms. Hank. Frida Wimelius, jury member and project manager at eXpression Umeå.

The JA Fair 2024 offered a unique opportunity for 130 JA companies from Västerbotten to exhibit their business ideas and compete in eleven different categories.

The event, organised for the first time in Sara Kulturhus, provides an important platform for dialogue and interaction with the county's future entrepreneurs - a natural place for eXpression to make new contacts.

The JA Fair is an opportunity for us to highlight our young talents and let the visitors meet the future. In short, it's an event where we don't just talk about young people, but with young people. Tilda Tullnér, project manager of the JA Fair 2024, in a press release.
