About the G20 YEA Summit

The G20 YEA Summit is an annual gathering of young entrepreneurs (age 18-40) and entrepreneurship-focused organizations from the G20 countries. Hosted by the G20 Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance, it provides valuable input to government leaders to assist in driving sustainable global economic growth, exchange ideas and to foster international partnerships and collaboration. The goals of the G20 YEA Summit are to:

  • Bring together 400 entrepreneurs from the 20 most powerful economies in the world to exchange and share their experiences with the leaders of the entrepreneurial ecosystem;
  • Promote the vital role entrepreneurs play in growth, job creation, innovation and competitiveness of nations;
  • Identify inhibitors to entrepreneurial growth, and recommendations to remove these obstacles within a communiqué forwarded on to business and political leaders, and to the international media attending the B20 and G20 Summits;
  • Launch results of the annual Ernst & Young Entrepreneurship Competitiveness Barometer that measures the entrepreneurship competitiveness amongst the G20 countries;
  • Launch results of Accenture’s exclusive Research on Innovation and Entrepreneurship; and
  • Inspire current and future generations of entrepreneurs.

Exciting Opportunities

The host organization, the Russian Centre for Entrepreneurship, will be holding a very interactive and engaging summit which includes:

  • Pre-summit engagement with thought leader partners Accenture Global & Ernst and Young Global – inputting to key surveys to help form the basis of the Communique that will be written together;
  • Engagement, interaction and networking sessions among all delegates and with the Presidents and Sherpas;
  • Preeminent speakers – the type of people you long to hear from and mingle with, who have something of value to say;
  • An online community among all delegates (past and present) enabling you to connect and network with other delegates, speakers, sponsors and organizers; and
  • Breakout/learning sessions to share best practices, learn new ones, assist with the development/finalization of the Communique and tangible recommendations to the B20 and G20 leaders on how to effectively address the key areas addressed in the Communique.
