Open Dialogue ‘Development Pathways for Young Entrepreneurship’

06 Jun , 16:45–18:00
The Russian Economy: Achieving National Development Goals
Pavilion G, conference hall G9

Young entrepreneurship is currently one of the priority discussion topics in which young people in Russia and around the world are interested. The primary factors hindering the development of youth entrepreneurship include: a low level of entrepreneurial activity and motivation, a lack of support for start-ups in their later stages of development, a low level of awareness among potential entrepreneurs about government support measures, and a lack of effective mechanisms for the creation of professional (project) teams and their acceleration. How can we find a solution to this? How can we help young entrepreneurs to transform their idea or project into a truly profitable business? What are the main trends, achievements, and prospects in the concept of developing youth entrepreneurship development around the world?
