2019 APEC Youth Innovation & Entrepreneurship Project

2019 APEC FORUM ON DIGITAL INNOVATION AND YOUTH ENTREPRENEURSHIP:
Building Capacity and Collaborative Connectivity for Young Entrepreneurs

Download Poster

The project intends to develop capacity through the transfer and development of knowledge, skills and technical know-how among experienced entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs-to-be from various Asia-Pacific economies. Entrepreneurial education is a process relying on the transfer of knowledge and ingenuity from successful entrepreneurs to entrepreneurs-to-be, leading to long-term capacity building and innovation initiatives. We are focusing on the most needed and transformative sectors of the digital economy, which offer promise of sustained and sustainable growth and inclusive employment. One of the major themes of the workshop is female entrepreneurship, related to inspiring female creativity and improving gender inclusion. Experience sharing during the workshop will further facilitate both internal and regional replicability through dissemination of acquired skills within the participants’ home economies and other regional sectors.

The 3-day event will include:

  • Introduction and Best Practices of Government and Academia Programs on Youth Innovative Entrepreneurship
  • APEC Regional Startup Experience & Knowledge Sharing
  • Startup Pitching Demo
