Youth entrepreneurship comes in many different forms, where fundamentally free enterprise is the realization of the free will of the individual in any given cultural context. Young entrepreneurs are solving a wide range of problems in the course of their business activity. Furthermore, G20 countries offer varying technological, socio-economic, institutional, and geographical conditions. Nonetheless, all entrepreneurs remain focused on finding effective solutions. Youth entrepreneurship in particular is characterized by flexible thinking and the absence of stereotypes, which are some of the qualities that play a decisive role in developing the global economy. Are there universal interests shared by young entrepreneurs in G20 countries? What are the most popular and effective initiatives for supporting and developing youth entrepreneurship in Russia and worldwide? What are the fundamental questions that need to be answered?
