The organization representing the world’s young entrepreneurs called for the G20 countries to review their educational priorities to ensure young people are properly prepared for the emerging digital world. The G20 Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance (G20 YEA) is concerned that youth across the world lack the knowledge and skills vital for new technological and business realities, including digital competencies, STEM education, and venture creation skills.
The Alliance issued the call at its annual summit, held this year in Berlin and hosted by the Wirtschaftsjunioren Deutschland/Junior Chamber International (JCI) Germany. Read more and download a copy of the Final Communiqué here.
More than 50 participants from 11 countries traveled more than 15 000 kilometers altogether to visit 5 locations in Stockholm during the 7th European Youth Entrepreneurship Conference that took place on the 18-20th of May in Sweden. Stockholm is one of the major hub of tech startups in Europe that has produced several of Europe’s biggest digital companies.
One of the major role of YES is helping young entrepreneurs connect internationally and find reliable and trusted contacts. Building relationships takes time and you have to understand that you need to invest yourself if you want to build successful international network. I strongly believe that YES meetings are a perfect way to do that
