Youth Business Europe Programme - Impact Report

Publications

The five-year-long Youth Business Europe (YBE) programme (2015 – 2020) was an ambitious partnership between Youth Business International (YBI) and Citi Foundation, designed to tackle the prevalent problem of youth unemployment in Europe. 

The programme was designed to support young entrepreneurs, with a focus on underserved young people in 10 countries to start or strengthen a business through training, networking, mentorship, and in some cases, financial assistance, drawing on the expertise of YBI and with the backing of Citi Foundation.  

Over the course of the programme, 11 members supported more than 38,000 young people to start or strengthen 11,000 businesses and 8,000 new jobs were created. YBI members were able to expand their offerings and forge valuable new connections, and Citi employees reported multiple benefits from their involvement in the initiative.
