Our mission

Our mission is to gather a team of young local entrepreneurs from diverse backgrounds and professional experiences to attend the G20 YEA Summit in China 2016. We want to better understand the disruptive effect innovation and technology are having on economies and businesses around the globe, so that we as leaders may promote a global culture of innovation within our home communities.

By attending the G20 summit we hope to connect with a global network of approximately 500,000 young entrepreneurs and the organisations that support them. We'll gain a valuable understanding of global trends, the challenges that global businesses are facing, and the ways in which they have responded to opportunities created by the evolution of business in their home economies. We aim to share our new found knowledge and experience with young Australians through various forms of digital media, and will hold a Gala Night to showcase how we plan to share and apply this knowledge to local business ventures.

G20 YEA Summit has been held each year since 2010. The first meeting was held in Canada, followed by summits in France, Mexico, Russia, and Australia. Disruptive innovation and technology, investment and access to capital, education and coordinated support, government regulation and taxation, trade and globalization, entrepreneurship, and culture and equality are the main topics of focus at each summit.

The summit provides a platform for business leadership from 20 member states to formulate responses to the opportunities and challenges created by the evolution of business in their home economies.



Date: November 18 2016

The Gala Night will be a black-tie, invitation-only event that will showcase our involvement at the G20 Summit and how we plan to apply our learnt knowledge and experience to local business ventures. The event will be held in conjunction with the Global Entrepreneur Week, where thousands of events and competitions around the world inspire millions to engage in entrepreneurial activity while connecting them to potential collaborators, mentors and even investors. The Global Entrepreneurship Week has expanded to 160 countries, building and strengthening entrepreneurial ecosystems around the world by looking at disruptive innovation. This year’s Global Entrepreneurship Week will be November 14-20 2016.
