New online portal to help young entrepreneurs start and grow their own business
A new online portal to help young entrepreneurs start and grow their own business was launched on 17 November 2011 by the Employers' Group of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC).
The website is a joint initiative of the EESC and the European Commission. It addresses policy failings in the promotion of entrepreneurship, especially among young people and women. The Global Entrepreneur Envoy online portal "Entrepreneur Envoy" will offer tools to foster culture change and promote entrepreneur-friendly policies.
The launch took place on 17 November 2011 during the third edition of the "Young European Entrepreneurs' Seminar", hosted by the president of the Employers' Group of the EESC, Henri Malosse. The event featured contributions from 52 active young entrepreneurs from 18 European countries.
