G20 Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance: 2011

2011 G20 Young Entrepreneur Summit

The G20 Young Entrepreneur Summit (G20 YES) is an annual international summit that brings together dedicated and influential entrepreneurs of the G20 countries.

Between October 31 – November 2, 2011, more than 400 international delegates gathered in Nice, France to discuss barriers to entrepreneurship and to strengthen the ecosystem, financing and culture needed to boost entrepreneurship worldwide.

At CYBF, we’re extraordinarily pleased with the outcomes of this very successful summit which built upon the incredible success of our own inaugural G20 YES which took place in in June of 2010 in Toronto.
