EDHEC at the heart of the G20 Young Entrepreneur Summit - From 30th october to 02nd october 2011

Written on 04 October 2011.

Following Toronto and Seoul, the third edition of the Young Entrepreneur Summit (G20 YES) - the annual event for the G20 countries' most emblematic entrepreneurs - is set to take place for the first time in France, on EDHEC's Nice Campus between 31 October and 2 November. Some 400 entrepreneurs from all over the world will attend with a view to assembling concrete proposals for submission to the G20 Heads of State at Cannes on 3 November. 

 This exceptional project places EDHEC at the heart of entrepreneurship. Our students and expert professors will work with the delegations during the various workshops and thus make a strategic contribution to preparing concrete proposals. The event recognises that innovation and business start-ups are a powerful stimulus for economic growth and are indispensable in the current period of crisis, enthuses Olivier Oger, Dean of EDHEC Business School. He will be making a personal contribution to the first round table scheduled to take place on 2 November under the theme: Why do emerging and developed economies struggle so much to integrate youth in the economy and is entrepreneurship something you can teach? Benoit Arnaud, Head of the EDHEC Management Institute, will be keynote speaker throughout 1 November for a series of discussions grouped under the following banner: Youth & Entrepreneurs - How can entrepreneurship help younger generations take charge of their own destiny?

A total of 70 EDHEC Business School students are directly involved in the event, with the Global MBA and MSc in Entrepreneurship students more particularly implicated in co-ordinating the themed workshops based on the reports to be presented by Ernst & Young on 31 October and by McKinsey on 1 November.
