Making youth entrepreneurship a viable path
Introduction | Messages | Participants | Sign Up

The virtual conference sought to collect input from the wider technical and vocational education and training (TVET) community about the role of TVET in promoting entrepreneurship. The virtual conference took place on the TVeT Forum from 18 to 29 July, 2016. One hundred and forty-six participants from 58 countries participated in the two-week conference. In order to increase our understanding of the nature of entrepreneurship, as well as the obstacles young entrepreneurs face, the virtual conference addressed the following questions:

  • What are some of the key challenges that young entrepreneurs, in different markets and from different backgrounds, face? And how can programmes or policies help them address those challenges?
  • What are the key skills that young entrepreneurs need to develop in order to be able to run successful ventures? And what role can TVET providers play in helping develop some of those skills?
  • What are some key best practices that we can identify when implementing youth entrepreneurship programmes?
