Unlocking the potential of youth-led social enterprises
Social enterprises represent a double opportunity to do business and generate social and environmental impact. Young people increasingly prioritise pursuing careers with positive social and environmental impacts. Social enterprises can help them fulfil this ambition. Youth-led social enterprises can address pressing social and environmental issues while providing young people with opportunities in the labour market.

Despite this potential, youth-led social enterprises often struggle due to the age of their founders and the specificities of their businesses. In particular, skills development, access to finance, navigating legal frameworks and visibility present notable challenges to young social entrepreneurs.

Based on diverse data sources, as well as numerous best practice examples from many OECD countries and beyond, the new OECD report Unlocking the potential of youth-led social enterprises sheds light on the potential of youth-led social enterprises, the challenges they face and what policy makers can do to help them thrive. It is part of the Global Action for Promoting Social and Solidarity Economy Ecosystems, funded by the European Commission.

This launch event will bring together voices from policy making, international networks and, most importantly, young social entrepreneurs, also as part of the OECD Stand By Youth initiative
