About the G20 Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance (G20 YEA)
The G20 YEA is a collective of leading entrepreneurially-minded organizations representing the G20 countries who seek to promote youth entrepreneurship as a powerful driver of economic renewal, job creation, innovation and social change. The Alliance was founded as a movement to engage the G20 leaders in the cause of youth entrepreneurship, share information across borders, affect positive policy change and create a global network of young entrepreneur advocates while building a collaborative entrepreneurial environment worldwide. In advance of every G20 Leaders’ Summit (set to be attended by Canada’s G20 Leader Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and G20 Sherpa Jonathan Fried in 2019), the G20 YEA brings together hundreds of the world’s top young entrepreneurs at the annual G20 YEA Summit to issue a communique to G20 Leaders. As is the case with each G20 Leaders’ Summit, the G20 YEA Summit takes place in a different country every year, by rotation of member countries.
