The JWEF : promote and accelerate youth entrepreneurship globally

The JWEF aims at contributing to the World Entrepreneurship Forum’s mission: “Promote and Accelerate Junior Entrepreneurship globally as a way to create wealth and social justice, to prepare the world of 2050”.

By promoting JWEF, the  World Entrepreneurship Forum brings the youth vision to the global reflection on entrepreneurship.

The Junior World Entrepreneurship Forum consists of:

  1. Local or national events held all over the world, gathering young people (students and young entrepreneurs) with various backgrounds (management, arts, engineer…).
    The event will focus on creating the youth vision about some specific topics discussed within the World Entrepreneurship Forum. The event can last 2 to 4 days, and our objective is to promote and accelerate youth entrepreneurship through inspirational talks, impacting workshops and networking sessions.
  2. A Global Online platform. Students and young entrepreneurs from every countries gather all year long through a collaborative online platform, offering a place where to connect, learn, get ideas and collaborate on projects. JWEF participants are allowed to access this platform and are expected to contribute to the online exchanges.
