AmCham EU Youth Entrepreneurship Award
Each year, thousands of JA alumni enter Europe’s economy as young entrepreneurs. Since 2013 the AmCham EU Youth Entrepreneurship Award leverages JA’s network to identify young people who have participated in a JA programme, made it past the initial start-up phase and have a business concept with strong growth potential.
For the third year, the AmCham EU Youth Entrepreneurship Award is focusing on female entrepreneurship.
It is time to nominate JA alumnae by 28 February 2023, to take part in the 10th edition of the AmCham EU Youth Entrepreneurship Award, which will be handed over to the winner at AmCham EU's 60th Anniversary Gala Dinner on Wednesday, 28 June 2023 in Brussels, Belgium.
Start-ups with at least one of the co-founders being a JA alumna can apply for the award. Applications are accepted until Tuesday 28 February 2023 at this link.
The young entrepreneurs are competing for the following prizes:
- First place: 10,000 EUR and a 6-month mentorship programme with European CEOs of AmCham EU members
- Second place: 5,000 EUR
- Third place: 2,500 EUR
Special prizes were also made available for the JA organisations nominating the winners (JA chapter or JA Alumni):
