Youth entrepreneurial energy is under-leveraged. Many youth want to engage in entrepreneurship but face significant hurdles. To fix this, it is important to identify and advocate for approaches that are most effective in fostering youth economic opportunities at scale. What are the frequent challenges and models for success for growing youth businesses at scale? How can we co-create solutions with youth?

The Global Alliance for Mass Entrepreneurship (GAME) and Education Development Center, Inc (EDC) invite you to join a group problem solving session that will present a vision and case study for scaling support to youth entrepreneurs. The audience will work with us to map out a needs statement for key stakeholders in a youth-focused system for scaling entrepreneurship. We will support the audience to articulate principles for developing successful approaches to scaling support for youth entrepreneurs.

 

This highly participatory session will leave participants with a tool to highlight gaps in the support systems available to youth entrepreneurs, enabling their journeys.
