Mentoring: a key component in youth entrepreneurship support


Starting a business is challenging, particularly for young entrepreneurs who need targeted support. Youth Business International’s global network of expert organisations is here to provide that support.

Mentoring is a key component of the integrated package of financial and non-financial support services that our members provide to young entrepreneurs. It is central to what makes our model so unique.

Over the past nine years we’ve supported 41 member organisations around the world to start, build or strengthen their mentoring programmes for young entrepreneurs. There are over 14,000 mentoring practitioners across our network, making it one of the biggest communities of mentors in the world.
