In Partnership with FEP Junior Consulting

At FEP Junior Consulting we believe in the power of collaboration, learning and continuous improvement. We are part of the Portuguese Junior Movement, a dynamic network of Junior Companies dedicated to boosting the potential of the young entrepreneurs and professionals of the future. It was in 1967, in Paris, that the first Junior Enterprise was created. In Portugal, the phenomenon emerged later, with the creation of the first JE in 1990. This was followed in 2012 by JADE Portugal, now JE Portugal (Junior Enterprises Portugal), which today includes 24 JEs.


The Portuguese Junior Movement is a vibrant and innovative community that brings together Junior Entrepreneurs from all over the country. Together, we seek to develop practical skills, offer quality consultancy solutions and prepare young people for the challenges of the corporate world.

In Partnership with JuniFEUP

At JuniFEUP, the University of Porto's Engineering Junior Enterprise, we focus on providing Engineering students opportunities to work on their scientific fields while studying.

We are all about building a bridge between academic knowledge and practice. Being inserted in the University of Porto the biggest in Portugal with over 30.000 students in 14 faculties, allows us to select and train top-of-the-class students, delivering quality projects and having an impact on the companies we aid. We're proud to present our distinguished prizes, collected over the last 20 years, on Excellence Practices and Social Responsibility. Let's get to work!
