His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales founded Youth Business International in 2000.

The Prince has played a vital role in our work to raise the profile of youth entrepreneurship, and has frequently visited YBI members during official engagements around the world – in countries such as Canada, Australia, India, Spain and Brazil. He has played a critical role in generating support for our work, helping YBI to develop new initiatives around the world, and raise awareness of our cause.

“I have always been of the opinion that young people have the skills and energy to make a  real difference to our world, and we must do all that we can to harness their talents.

That is why I am so proud of the achievements of my Youth Business International, which over the past year has  worked with thousands of young people to help them start their own business.

Youth Business International, through its global network, plays a vital role in helping aspiring young entrepreneurs and building the next generation of business champions.”


We have years of experience understanding what works in youth entrepreneurship.
