TORONTO, July 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — As an official co-founding member of the G20 Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance, Futurpreneur is proud to announce the 2021 delegation of the Canadian G20 Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance (YEA), a key engagement group focused on the impact of youth entrepreneurship in G20 economies. As part of the summit, 49 of Canada’s best and brightest young entrepreneurs will represent Canada at the hybrid G20 YEA summit, hosted by Italy, on October 5 and 6.
The YEA is a collective of organizations from G20 countries that work to promote and advance youth entrepreneurship. The Alliance represents over 500,000 young entrepreneurs worldwide. Each year, the G20 YEA brings together hundreds of young entrepreneurs and knowledge partners from across the globe at an annual summit in advance of the G20 leaders’ event, to develop connections, share ideas, and influence G20 policy.
The summit is a valuable opportunity for decision-makers to hear the perspectives of young entrepreneurs, who are typically underrepresented in conversations about business and economic development. Futurpreneur Canada reviewed submissions from more than 130 candidates eager to influence G20 policy and accelerate their business interests abroad. After a highly competitive selection process, 49 delegates from across the country were selected to represent Canada on the international stage. Each Canadian delegate brings their own diverse lived experiences and forms one of the more robust delegations of the YEA..
Canada holds a variety of Free Trade Agreements with several G20 member countries, giving Canadian delegates opportunities throughout the Summit to promote Canadian trade priorities and grow their businesses.This year’s summit will be held virtually with a small-scale in-person gathering in Milan (Italy), pending health regulations. The summit will focus on the role of youth entrepreneurship for an innovative, inclusive, and sustainable post-COVID-19 economic ecosystem.
Canadian G20 YEA delegates will participate in a variety of virtual business-building, policy-making and networking activities alongside hundreds of other young entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial leaders from across the G20 countries.The 2021 Canadian delegation’s participation in the G20 YEA Hybrid Summit and related trade activities are funded in part by the Government of Canada.
