Event Description

Who are these young entrepreneurs, innovators and leaders?

How has their entrepreneurial experience impacted their lives?

JA Europe is celebrating the 2018 honourees to FERD’s LIST of Inspiring Young Entrepreneurs and Leaders in Brussels on October 10th.

Launched in 2017, FERD’s LIST aims to showcase the impact entrepreneurship education is having on job creation and innovation in Europe. FERD’s LIST recognizes young inspirational innovators, leaders, and entrepreneurs. This year, 6 honourees will be added to FERD’s LIST. They will be celebrated for the pathway that they are on, and for the contributions they are making to the economy and society. Their experience can teach others that anything is possible.

The event will take place in front of an international audience of young people, business leaders, ambassadors, MEPs, EU officials, entrepreneurship education experts and the media.
