Supporting Young Entrepreneurs: What Works? An Evidence and Learning Review from the YBI network
An Evidence and Learning review from our global network, commissioned by Youth Business International and their partner EY.
This report seeks to address the gulf in evidence of what works best when provisioning support for young entrepreneurs in different social and economic contexts.
The Youth Business International (YBI) Network operates in over 40 countries and brings a unique, global point of view on youth entrepreneurship programming. Their Network Members work in diverse contexts with the shared mission of helping underserved youth to start or grow their own business.
YBI has undertaken evidence and learning activities across East Africa, the Eastern Caribbean and Europe. In doing so, they have surfaced some valuable ingredients in implementing successful youth entrepreneurship support initiatives.
Supported by EY, this review aims to consolidate some learnings, successes and challenges which have emerged from YBI's work over the past five years. Their intention is to contribute practical learning to expand the knowledge base of what works in the growing youth entrepreneurship support sector.
