The Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition is a new and exciting international initiative co-organized by the Goi Peace Foundation, Stiftung Entrepreneurship and UNESCO. The Competition provides an online entrepreneurial and educational platform for young people from all around the world in between the ages of 15 and 30. It gives young people the opportunity to develop their entrepreneurial potentials and creative talents, and encourages them to submit their innovative ideas (Best Ideas Category) and projects (Best Projects Category) by 30 June, 2014 at the latest.
Youth participants have the opportunity to receive a free online training at the Entrepreneurship Campus, and to get their entries brushed up by peers and prospective experts. Entries are subject to public voting and commenting. The 10 entries receiving most vote in each of the two categories will be considered as finalists. From among these finalists, a Panel of Judges will make the final selection of three winners in each category. In addition, the People’s Prize will be given to the entry with the largest number of votes in each of the two categories. Grand Prize and People’s Choice Prize winners will be invited to the award ceremony at the Entrepreneurship Summit in Berlin on11-12 October 2014, where they will present their ideas and projects to an international audience.
