Join us for a lively panel discussion with 5 innovative start-ups considered for this year’s Youth Entrepreneurship Award.


The 8th all-female edition of the award is organised in collaboration with JA Europe and is a symbol of the support for jobs, growth and innovation by AmCham EU and its members, as well as commitment to the future prosperity of Europe. Mariya Gabriel, Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, European Commission will provide opening remarks.


The winner will be unveiled at the virtual event where you will hear directly from the female lead start-ups about their achievements, struggles and plans for the future. This year’s top 5 finalists represent the strongest start-ups selected from a pool of applicants coming from different countries in the European Union.

Each sector/industry represented by the start-up showcases unique solutions like children’s books that focus on diversity and inclusion, online studying tools and a nutrition app for cancer patients. Register and find out more about the real challenges faced by young entrepreneurs in Europe.
