Youth and Women Entrepreneurship

The ESBN Task force on Youth and Women Entrepreneurship promotes the business leapfrogging and economic growth of young and women entrepreneurs from ESCAP Member States by establishing and expanding entrepreneurial ecosystems.

It does so by leading and collaborating with a variety of programs and initiatives that foster innovation, business opportunities, gender equality, environmental sustainability and social inclusiveness such as entrepreneurial cross-geography/discipline competitions, capacity building programs, public-private sector initiatives and digital platforms for the benefit of the current and upcoming generations of young entrepreneurs.
