Youth entrepreneurship remains one of the main avenues of economic development. One can see it in the creative potential of younger generations and their desire to improve the world around them. All this contributes to socialization, growth of employment and, most importantly, self-fulfilment of young people. At the same time, technological start-ups play a special role, solving many problems and creating opportunities to improve the quality of life. How effective are the measures to support youth entrepreneurship? What is missing? What will happen to youth entrepreneurship under current conditions? What support tools are relevant in 2022? How to involve the new generation in youth technology entrepreneurship?
