Publications

When COVID-19 hit, YBI immediately leveraged its experience and rallied its network to respond to the pressing needs of millions of young entrepreneurs around the world. Thanks to the support of Google.org and partners such as Accenture, YBI was able to respond rapidly and catalyse a global response. The Rapid Response and Recovery Programme  was launched offering COVID-19 focussed services in 65 countries to support entrepreneurs across the globe deal with the unique challenges presented by the pandemic and accompanying lockdowns and social distancing measures.  

For seven months YBI, along with its members and delivery partners, have mobilised, pivoted, and innovated a suite of services fit-for-purpose to respond to the crisis. We share our learning to date and our actions for a continued response and recovery that meets the needs of young entrepreneurs.
