AmCham EU Youth Entrepreneurship Award 2020

10 July 2020 Location: Brussels

For its 8th edition, the AmCham EU Youth Entrepreneurship Award (YEA) is going all-female, featuring 5 young women who represent the strongest start-ups from a pool of JA alumnæ across Europe. The Award, organised in collaboration with the American Chamber of Commerce to the European Union (AmCham EU) is a symbol of our support for jobs, growth and innovation, as well as a commitment to the future prosperity of Europe.

The winner will be unveiled at the virtual event where you will hear directly from the female lead start-ups about their achievements, struggles and plans for the future. Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth (European Commission) will provide the opening remarks.

Each sector or industry represented by the start-ups showcases unique solutions - from children's books that focus on diversity and inclusion, to online studying books or a nutrition app for cancer patients. Register here and find out more about the challenges faced by young entrepreneurs in Europe.
