G20 Young Entrepreneurs Summit Seeks Ideas To Unlock The Potential Of Youth Entrepreneurship In A Post-Recovery World

Published June 20th, 2010 - 07:01 GMT

From June 20th to 22nd entrepreneurs, academics, government officials and youth entrepreneurship organizations from G20 nations will come together in Toronto, Ontario, Canada to discuss how to harness the potential of young entrepreneurs worldwide.

Hosted by the Canadian Youth Business Foundation (CYBF), the G20 Young Entrepreneur Summit is recognized by the Canadian government as an official G20 event. The recommendations resulting from the Summit will be the focus of a discussion about entrepreneurship at the G20 Business Summit (B20) taking place in Toronto on June 25th-26th and attended by two senior business leaders from G20 countries. This Summit builds on the success of the inaugural G-8 Young Business Leaders Summit held in Stresa, Italy in 2009.

"The future of youth entrepreneurship is an issue of tremendous importance for the G20 nations and the encouragement and promotion of youth enterprise will help the global economy to move beyond the recovery phase and into job creation," says Vivian Prokop, Chief Executive Officer of CYBF and Chair of the G20 Young Entrepreneur Summit. "We are excited to host over 200 delegates, and to provide a voice for young entrepreneurs and the audience to hear it."

At the Summit, delegations from the G20 nations including delegates from The Centennial Fund, representing Saudi Arabia will identify and examine the issues impeding young entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial organizations from around the globe. The discussions will result in the development of a communiqué identifying shared policy issues and approaches. On June 22, 2010, the communiqué will be presented to the G20 Leaders to inform their efforts to maximize the economic potential of young entrepreneurs
