“We look forward to being able to showcase Australians businesses to G20 countries around the world. We strongly encourage young entrepreneurs to register and be a part of this unforgettable experience to engage in a dialogue with the world leaders of entrepreneurship.”
More than 500 top entrepreneurs and leaders from G20 countries around the world are expected to attend the three-day summit to be held in Sydney in July this year.
The G20YEA Summit aims to create a strategy to reduce unemployment by 10% by 2030. It will focus on youth entrepreneurship as a solution to unemployment through job creation, youth employment and growth.
Delegates must be 40 years old or under, a business founder, cofounder, majority shareholder or leader in entrepreneur ecosystem building from a high revenue or high potential business. Delegates must also be clear on the summit outcome to “build an action plan on youth unemployment” and have experience and ability to add value to at least one of six pillars (listed below).
The six pillar areas that affect local business ecosystems around the world will be explored at the summit. These include: trade and globalisation; investment and access to funding; government, taxation and regulation; innovation and technology; education and coordinated support; and entrepreneurship culture.
