The G20 Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance (G20 YEA)

Who we are: The G20 Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance (G20 YEA) is a collective of leading entrepreneurially-minded organizations representing the G20 countries who seek to promote youth entrepreneurship as a powerful driver of economic renewal, job creation, innovation and social change. Australia is a founding member of the Alliance.

Why is it important to Australia: Aussie ingenuity, innovation, persistence and determination need to be championed. Australia punches well above it’s weight in business innovation and success, and the world needs to see just how great our young entrepreneurs are!

In 2014 the G20YEA Summit arrives in Australia, and Sydney is one of the world’s fastest growing start-up communities. This will shine the spotlight of global entrepreneurship firmly on Australia!

About the Australian Delegation: From pre-revenue to well-established, east coast to west coast, the Australian delegation attending this year’s Summit represent the diversity of the Australian entrepreneurial ecosystem. The members represent the grass-root job creators and economic stimulators, they are providing a platform in which the country can prosper past the mining boom. We have social enterprises like the amazing “School for Life foundation” and “Impact Leaders”, large award winning businesses like “Job Capital”, Tom Dawkins who founded Start Some Good, Incubators like BlueChilli and Pollenizer, and a company transforming the financial planning industry “Wealth Enhancers”

Countries G20 YEA represents: Country members include: Australia, Brazil, Canada, China,

France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, the Republic of Korea, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, the UK, the USA, South Africa and Argentina. The European Union is also represented in the G20 YEA.

Background of G20 YEA: The Alliance was founded as a movement to engage the G20 leaders in the cause of youth entrepreneurship, share information across borders, affect positive policy change and create a global network of young entrepreneur advocates while building a collaborative entrepreneurial environment worldwide.

G20 YEA goal: The G20 YEA provides leadership to G20 political leaders in best practices in promoting youth entrepreneurship through policy recommendations and sharing best practices in the areas of access to funding, coordinating support initiatives, enhancing the entrepreneurship culture, regulation and taxation, and education and training.

How G20 YEA achieves their goal: The G20 YEA Summit is a forum where young entrepreneurs from the G20 countries can meet with their peers, learn best practices in growing dynamic companies, and celebrate entrepreneurship as the leading source of job and wealth creation, innovation and the well-being of all nations. The Summit is held prior to the G20 Summit of political leaders. The combined best practices and recommendations from all participants are put forward to political leaders attending the G20 Summit.

The members are self-funding their attendance to assist with the creation & shaping of global policy focused on enhancing global entrepreneurial ecosystems from across the globe.

Our 10 younger ‘Startup’ organisations will be distributed the money raised pro-rata. So if we raise $15k then they will each receive $1,500 towards the trip, leaving them with another $3k or so to fund from their own pockets. They are all extremely passionate about attending, however starting a business is expensive and very time consuming, so we need your help!

The delegation has put their hand up to represent you! Australia, and the future of Australian business. If you are employed, then that company was started by an entrepreneur at some point. Without entrepreneurship new companies can not be born to replace the old.

If you are starting a business, then our delegation is going in to bat for you with Government, to make your work life better.

100% of the funds will be treated as a contribution to funding flights, accommodation, registration fees and working expenses for the Delegation.
