Initiatives: G20 Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance

Following the overwhelming success of the inaugural G20 Young Entrepreneur Summit (G20 YES) which took place in 2010 in Toronto, member countries agreed to form a new collective of leading entrepreneurially-minded organizations representing the G20 countries.

The G20 Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance met in Seoul, Korea in November 2010 to create and sign a charter document outlining ways to encourage the G20 to include entrepreneurship in its agenda, while also committing to share best practices with each member country in order to help build supportive entrepreneurial environments worldwide.

The Alliance was founded as a movement to engage the G20 leaders in the cause of youth entrepreneurship, share information across borders, affect positive policy change and create a global network of young entrepreneur advocates while building a collaborative entrepreneurial environment worldwide.
