Entrepreneurs’ Organization Leads US Delegation to G20 Youth Entrepreneurs’ Alliance in Sydney, Australia

Entrepreneurs represented in global summit to propose global solutions for youth unemployment and job creation

Alexandria, Virginia, USA (18 July 2014) – The Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO), the world’s leading peer-to-peer community of entrepreneurs, will represent the U.S. delegation of business owners and young entrepreneurs at the 5th annual G20 Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance Summit (G20 YEA) in Sydney, Australia, from 18-22 July. The Summit will address solutions to the global economic struggle of creating employment for young populations. There are currently 1.8 billion youth, of which 90 percent live in developed countries and two-thirds are unemployed. The Alliance is working to promote youth entrepreneurship as a solution to youth unemployment and the challenge of economic renewal.

“These inspiring young entrepreneurs are already changing the world and creating jobs,” said Kevin Langley, president of the U.S. Delegation and former Global Chairman of EO. “Youth unemployment is a global problem today, and their innovation, entrepreneurial leadership and experience will advance youth entrepreneurship in the U.S. and beyond. This global movement is about positioning entrepreneurship as a solution, as well as generating energy and dynamism that can transform our societies and our economies.”

The U.S. delegation includes winners of EO’s prestigious Global Student Entrepreneur Awards (GSEA) and EO members who were selected to participate in the three-day gathering from around the country. The Alliance consists of 20 of the leading organizations across the G20, which represent more than one million young entrepreneurs employing 12 million people. Its objective is to formulate strategies to reduce unemployment below 10 percent by 2030 and install youth entrepreneurship as a solution to unemployment in the post-2015 United Nations Millennium Development Goals through a focus on job creation and youth employment, the primary subject of the G20 leaders’ Summit, to be held in Brisbane, Australia, in November.
