YBL 2011

Nine individuals, including relevant education policymakers and practitioners (second and third level), young entrepreneurs, community development specialists, financing and investing agents, and government representatives from Ireland and from Northern Ireland were selected to engage with their American counterparts on how schools, universities, and vocational training centers could foster and encourage business innovation and entrepreneurship among young people. The programme examined issues such as the resources and policies necessary to develop young, innovative and productive entrepreneurial talent with the aim of facilitating the creation of new, viable, and sustainable private enterprises.
