The Lost Generation of Job Creators: A Cross-Sector Forum on Expanding Access for Aspiring Young Entrepreneurs

Global Center for Youth Employment
Are we at risk of losing a generation of job creators? If so, why are current efforts falling short? And what, through collective action, can we do about it?
 
Join us for a dynamic discussion of the need, proposed solutions, and next steps for collaboration, at the Global Center for Youth Employment on May 17, 2017. 
 
In advance of the discussion, the GCYE will distribute a new report on expanding access to entrepreneurship: "An Ecosystem Model for Credentialing Entrepreneurs." The report introduces a framework for engaging market stakeholders in identifying and championing young job creators, and proposes a digital platform for expanding entrepreneurial capability.
 
An interdisciplinary panel will discuss the report's recommendations. The panel will convene experts in workforce development, entrepreneurship, credentialing, poverty alleviation, and youth programming. 
 
After the panel, you are warmly invited to join us for a working lunch to discuss the framework and collaborate to address this vital need.
