Models for scaling the impact of youth entrepreneurship programmes

Reports

Commissioned by Youth Business International (YBI) in 2018, the report reviews experiences and success factors in scaling entrepreneurship programmes within and outside of the YBI network, and provides case studies of models for replication together with a scaling framework.

This report provides a set of recommendations covering key approaches to scale, including:

  • Buiding strategic alliances
  • Harnessing digital solutions
  • Diversifying business models
  • Promoting innovation and impact

We hope this piece of work will be a valuable contribution to global learning on this topic and will help shape more impactful scaling models so that in future even greater numbers of underserved young people can successfully develop themselves and their businesses.
