We’re bringing together leading young entrepreneurs to share their roads to small business ownership, their personal stories, their business tips and lessons learned in an interactive session. Some of the dialogue will be used to formulate public policy measures needed to move the young entrepreneur’s business agenda to the next level.




With youth unemployment twice the national average in many communities, the SBA recognizes a need to promote and better support the efforts of young people looking to create jobs for themselves and others. Young entrepreneurs are a dynamic resource for our national recovery and growth.
