Youth Business International (YBI) is a global network of expert organisations supporting underserved young people to turn their ideas into successful businesses, creating jobs and strengthening communities.
Locally rooted network leading to global impact
Established in 2000, YBI brings together organisations with aligned goals to develop and scale the most effective solutions to the critical challenges facing young entrepreneurs and catalyse positive change in entrepreneurship culture.
Since 2014 we have supported over 95,000 young people to start or grow a business by delivering a range of practical entrepreneurship support services, from guiding a young person to register a new business and improving their bookkeeping skills to helping them write a business plan or grow their fledgling business through facilitating access to finance.
Our expert members
Our members operate in over 50 countries around the world. They are diverse, ranging from training organisations, microfinance institutions, mentoring specialists to business associations and incubators. Locally rooted and locally-led, members combine deep contextual knowledge with YBI’s sector-leading global expertise and tools.
The Network effect
YBI is supported by the Network Team, based in London, UK and Bogotá, Colombia. This small, passionate team is committed to equipping members with the most effective solutions to empower youth with the right tools to start and grow sustainable businesses. As a network, we learn, innovate and influence together to drive impact for young entrepreneurs and their communities.
Our values are embedded in everything we do:
Tenacity - We won't give up until every young entrepreneur has the opportunity to succeed
Collaboration - We work together as a team, building trust to connect and empower
Quality - We strive to set the highest standards in youth entrepreneurship support
In this role, you will be part of a small team leading on monitoring, evaluation, research and learning across the network.
