According Global Entrepreneurship Monitor 2011 (GEM), Brazil has 27 million people involved in own business and it is at third position in a scale of 54 countries. This data shows a clear scenario of improving self development which has been encouraged since people get into Universities.
During college, many young people already have profile and entrepreneurial characteristics. Thus, to develop skills and management skills, many of them seek to participate in the Junior Enterprise Movement, whose goal is to promote a market experience to undergraduate students of the institution to which the Junior Company is bound.
The movement was started in 1967 at L'Ecole Supérieure des Sciences Economiques et Commerciales - Paris, France. The Movement has expanded and the first Brazilian Junior Company was established in 1989, at the Fundação Getúlio Vargas (FGV) in São Paulo. The movement is represented by the Federation of Junior Enterprises and almost all states have its own core.
Any graduate student in higher education may be part of a junior company related to your course but you must go through a selection process as large companies do to choose their interns and trainees. it has general knowledge test, group dynamics and interviews.
And it's important to assert that many of companies have been working under a gruop of students that have decided to develop something -- and their connection have come from experiences they have done in university.
