We are delighted to announce YBI’s Global Youth Entrepreneurship Summit (GYES) 2024!
Join leading experts and YBI members from over 50 countries across six continents, and help shape the future of youth entrepreneurship to drive a generation for change.
This year’s event will be hosted in ‘City Under the Sun’ and hub of entrepreneurial innovation Nairobi, Kenya. The three-day Summit will take place Tuesday 8th – Thursday 10th October at the Kenyan School of Monetary Studies, a leafy and ecologically friendly oasis minutes away from bustle of the city centre or the magic of the Nairobi National Park.
The YBI Network has always been about global partnering rooted in local expertise, so we’re delighted to share that our Summit is being co-hosted and produced in partnership with our excellent Kenyan Members Somo Africa and CAP YEI, who we’ll be hearing more from in coming weeks.
The theme of YBI’s 2024 Global Summit is: Generation for Change - Shaping the future of Youth Entrepreneurship.
This Summit is your chance to be part of the collective commitment to addressing the urgent topics of our time, and having a transformative impact through youth entrepreneurship.
The Global Youth Entrepreneurship Summit is YBI’s flagship event and GYES 2024 promises a week of connection, inspiration and celebration. It is a space for YBI members to connect with game changers and sector innovators through workshops and facilitated discussions to explore, ideate, collaborate, and generate new approaches that respond to the ever-changing needs, challenges and aspirations of young entrepreneurs globally. We are also delighted to share that we will again be spotlighting the success of young entrepreneurs throughout the network and bringing the finalists of the 2024 Global Young Entrepreneur of the Year Awards to the Summit.
After the success of our last Summit in The Hague we are particularly excited to be getting together face-to-face again and building on the relationships fostered since then, as well as making new friends and connections.
All updates about this event will be available on our dedicated Generation for Change site, containing all information about our two flagship events this year, The YBI Bootcamp and the Global Youth Entrepreneurship Summit.
