In the lead up to the G20 Young Entrepreneurs Alliance Summit in Sydney next moth, the SME Association of Australia has announced a new partnership with the G20 Young Entrepreneurs Alliance (G20YEA) Australia.
SMEA Chairman Craig West applauded G20YEA as a collective of leading organisations representing over 500,000 entrepreneurs across the G20 nations and European Union. G20YEA seeks to promote youth entrepreneurship as a powerful driver of economic renewal, job creation, innovation and social change.
Although the global economy is steadily improving following the GFC, most economies continue to struggle with the challenge of creating enough employment for their young populations. At the 2013 Young Entrepreneurs Alliance Summit in Russia, G20 and B20 leaders recognised that entrepreneurship is a solution to the global youth employment crisis.
Following on from last year’s event (see picture, right), Sydney will be the host for the four-day, G20 Young Entrepreneurs Alliance Summit, Australia 2014 that will run from July 18 to July 21.
“It’s fantastic to see leaders in Australia’s entrepreneurship ecosystem coming together to support a unified message at the G20YEA Summit,” Aaron McNeilly, Sherpa G20YEA Australia, said. “I am encouraged by engagement we are having with The Australian Government on policies and programs to support SMEs and the entrepreneurs that will be the next generation of high growth enterprises.”
McNeilly and West encourage all My Business readers to register for the G20 Young Entrepreneurs Alliance Summit, which can be done now via G20yeasummit.com. For more information on the summit, watch the latest video here now.
