What is JWEF?
The Junior World Entrepreneurship Forum (JWEF) consists of local or national events held over 2-4 days all over the world, gathering young aspiring entrepreneurs, students and change makers to come together and take part in workshops, networking sessions and be inspired by talks and workshops on a range of different entrepreneurship topics.
With the first JWEF event launched by EMLYON Business School and KPMG in Shanghai in 2008, the event is now truly part of the international stage; in 2014, there were 12 worldwide JWEF events, taking place in France, China, India, Malaysia, Singapore, Turkey, Sri Lanka, Iran, Tanzania, Hong Kong, Indonesia and Argentina throughout the year bringing together over 10,000 students. The World Entrepreneurship Forum also invites members of the JWEF to attend annually in order to create a youth vision to align with their global objectives.
Ultimately the Junior World Entrepreneurship Forum aims to promote and accelerate youth entrepreneurship globally as a way to create wealth and social justice, to prepare the world for 2050.
