Emprendimiento de jóvenes: Una ventana al mundo

By Maritza Vela

In English

Al describir su opinión sobre el Global Youth Entrepreneurship Summit de Youth Business International (YBI) realizado en la ciudad de Londres la semana pasada, los participantes utilizaron las siguientes palabras: uplifting, inspirational, reenergizing, a privilege, a global network of equals, building skills, an opportunity to reconnect. Para mí fue como abrir una ventana al mundo y a “true humbling experience”.

Inspiration is found in many places

Just before the holidays I went to London and had tea with the Prince of Wales. Yes, it’s true! The Prince is a great advocate for youth entrepreneurship, and founder of Youth Business International, a global network of programs that offer training, mentoring and access to capital to young people who want to start and grow businesses of their own. The MIF has partnered with YBI in Argentina, Mexico, Colombia, Barbados, Belize, Guyana, and Trinidad and Tobago, helping more than 1500 young entrepreneurs realize their dream, and generating employment for more than 3,000 people.
