How can resource-weak youth turn challenges for starting up businesses into opportunities based on their own resources? How can organisations promote an entrepreneurial and creative mindset that makes youth change makers? How can we measure low-income entrepreneurial behavior, considering the context of today? This presentation demonstrates two evidence-based entrepreneurship models that go beyond learning about the elements in starting a business. The models focus on how youth can be empowered to have an entrepreneurial attitude and become aware of their own resources and strengths.
