Many students want to learn how to start a business in school, but most schools – and even universities – do not offer such knowledge.

Many studies indicate that a large majority of students desire to learn more about business topics at school.
A survey at the Bonn International School in Bonn, Germany, from 2019 showed that about 76% of the students (and their parents) would like to have more entrepreneurial offerings.

Additionally, research spanning from early 2020 to early 2024 shows that an overwhelming 84% of GenZ individuals aspire to become self-employed within the next five years. Young people – especially the GenZ – increasingly want to work for themselves in the next few years. They are less interested in traditional careers and more focused on finding purpose in their work.

Recognizing these trends, the YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS CLUB is aiming to fill the gap by providing knowledge, guidance, coaching, and preparation for ambitious young minds seeking to start designing their own career paths.

being in the middle is fine, so long as your grades aren’t too bad.
Only this kind of person - a middle-of-the-road student -
has enough free time to learn other skills."

Dreams do not work unless you take action. 

That has always been the case, and now it is more present than ever. Hence, the need for collaboration, communication, and reliable communities becomes more important, especially with new technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI) on the horizon. But most people underestimate the value of their personal networks.

Being a member of the YEC will enable you to build YOUR OWN STRONG NETWORK and find specific networking opportunities that will help you with your endeavors.
