26 years after the European Confederation of Young Entrepreneurs was initiated in Italy with the signature of the “Capri Charter”, passionate Young Entrepreneurs will gather in Rome on December 18-19, 2014 for the 2nd European Youth Entrepreneurship Conference, named “Scale up Europe”.
After the EYEC-I held in Greece a few months ago, the Rome meeting will be the second of EYEC event, taking place on a six months basis at the EU Member State holding the rotating Presidency of the Council of the European Union. Confindustria Young Entrepreneurs, the Founding Member of YES for Europe, took the torch to organize EYEC-II in Italy, under the Auspices of the Italian Presidency of the Council of the EU.
As the title of the event suggest, the mission of this second EYEC is twofold. First, creating an opportunity of discussion for the various European Associations of Young Entrepreneurs aiming to creating a renewed, updated framework for the European Confederation of Young Entrepreneurs to contribute to “Scale up” European integration. Second, debating the strategies to let European companies really “scale up” and succeed in the today’s international market. This part will include the presence of an outstanding speaker: Daniel Isenberg.
“Scale up Europe” will overlap with Confindustria Y.E. national assembly creating an unparalleled networking opportunity with hundreds of Italian Young Entrepreneurs.
Looking forward to welcoming you and members of your organization to Rome and wishing a very successful EYEC-II, kindly contact Maria Logotheti or at the phone contact +32 (0)493051428 for additional information and registration procedures.
