YES for Europe, along with the Young Entrepreneurs Forum of Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Katowice, is pleased to announce the 4th European Youth Entrepreneurship Conference, to be held in Katowice, Poland on October 12-14.
The EYEC conference will be held as part of the EU-US Young Entrepreneurs Summit Katowice 2015 during the V European Congress of Small and Medium-Size Enterprises in Katowice, Poland, and will bring together representatives of young entrepreneurs from Europe and the U.S., delegates from the European Commission, opinion makers from the U.S., as well as start-up founders, investors and executives from Poland and all of Europe, with a focus on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).
In his welcome message announcing the 4th EYEC / EU-U.S. Young Entrepreneurs Summit, YES President, Dimitris Tsingos stated:
The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership presents unprecedented challenges and opportunities to the Young Entrepreneurs at both of the two largest unified economic activity areas of the planet.
As YES for Europe has early identified the need for overcoming the market fragmentation barriers, we naturally have a positive stand against TTIP. However we do aim to making sure that every single young entrepreneur of Europe has credible information on what TTIP truly is, how it may influence their business and prospects and, most importantly, how their voice can be heard loudly and clearly during the negotiations phase.
In this context we are thrilled to announce the EU-U.S. Young Entrepreneurs Summit in Katowice and to invite young entrepreneurs from all across Europe to join, meet their US counterparts and work together for creating the largest economic partnership of all times.
