Nominations Open for the AmCham EU Youth Entrepreneurship Award 202207 March 2022
For the third year in a row, the AmCham EU Youth Entrepreneurship Award is dedicated to female entrepreneurship. It is time to nominate inspiring female entrepreneurs!
Together, AmCham EU (The American Chamber of Commerce to the European Union) and JA Europe are putting youth entrepreneurship in the spotlight by showcasing young people who have chosen to become entrepreneurs and sending a positive message to the media and policymakers.
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 in a row, the AmCham EU Youth Entrepreneurship Award is dedicated to female entrepreneurship.
Start-ups with at least one of the co-founders being a JA alumna can apply for the award. Nominees are selected by a jury from JA Europe and AmCham EU. The winner of the Award is announced at the AmCham EU Gala, taking place this year on Wednesday 15 June 2022 in Brussels.
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 are also offered to the JA organisations (chapter or alumni) nominating the winners:
- First place: 2,500 EUR
- Second place: 1,500 EUR
- Third place: 500 EUR
