Young global entrepreneurs are based in developing countries. These are spirited, enterprising young people who have reached out to Partnership in Enterprise for assistance to create their own businesses. To ensure they are successful, we have nurtured their ideas and linked them up with Enterprise Ambassadors and volunteers from the developed world.
Young people in developing countries are thirsty for knowledge and business skills which will allow them to create their own enterprises, either individually or as a collective. Not just business â€˜experimentsâ€™ or short-term projects that last for a few months and then peter out, but businesses that find increasing success in competitive markets over years. Young people in developing countries have been starved ofÂ business opportunity. Partnership in Enterprise redresses the balance. Each day in a little way we make things happen.
