Innovation Challenge: Learning report

Reports

In 2018, Youth Business International launched the first ever Innovation Challenge, a pilot initiative aimed at supporting members to ideate and test new solutions that meet the pressing challenges faced by young entrepreneurs worldwide.

Organised by YBI, and supported by Accenture and the IDB Lab, the Innovation Challenge invited YBI members to propose new ways in which they can improve the support services offered to young entrepreneurs in four areas: mentoring, training, access to finance and access to markets.

This report shares an overview of the first Youth Business International Innovation Challenge. It outlines the process we undertook and the ideas submitted; the results achieved by the two Challenge winners; and the lessons learned.
