Entrepreneurship is undergoing a major transformation, and the government, business sector, and society need to talk and work together in order to develop youth entrepreneurship. A number of steps have already been taken in this area, and while these have been effective, a number of pressing questions remain. How has entrepreneurship transformed over the past few years? What skills do today’s young entrepreneurs need to have? What role is mentorship playing in helping to develop youth entrepreneurship? What best international practices for developing youth entrepreneurship currently exist?
