Leveraging Young Entrepreneurs for Global Growth
From 18-22 July, hundreds of young entrepreneurs from around the world united in Sydney, Australia, to participate in the G20 Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance Summit, an annual event that promotes youth entrepreneurship as a powerful driver of economic renewal, job creation, innovation and social change. The official communiqué of the Summit is the voice of nearly two million business owners, all of whom are recommending youth entrepreneurship as a dominating force for strong, sustainable and balanced growth.
Recognizing young entrepreneurship as a driver of positive change, the Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) invited select EO members, Accelerators and winners of the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards (GSEA) to serve as U.S. delegates during the three-day Summit, with the support of EO Louisiana’s Kevin Langley, former EO Global Chairman and president of the U.S. delegation. While on site, EO’s delegates leveraged their experiences, best practices and strategic solutions to the benefit of other global entrepreneurs in attendance.
