Young Entrepreneurs Final Project Report

The International Youth Foundation (IYF) invests in the extraordinary potential of young people.

Through the Young Entrepreneurs program, IYF equips youth entrepreneurs in Delhi and Mumbai with skills, guidance and support, and access to finance to allow them to successfully start or expand their own small businesses.

To date, the Young Entrepreneurs program has provided 1,000 youth entrepreneurs with:

  • Business and life skills trainings to develop their human capital in areas such as creative thinking, risk taking, business administration, and marketing
  • Access to financial capital as needed via a revolving loan fund or access to financial institutions
  • Ongoing technical assistance and links to adult business mentors and other youth entrepreneurs

Donor support through GlobalGiving has been critical to linking the 1,000 participating youth to skills training, group mentoring and field visits to local businesses in the areas of banking, fashion design, food production, business management and small business development. 

The program will continue to guide and support these youth as they start and expand their businesses and hire a targeted 1,900 youth from their communities, thus expanding the program’s reach and impact.  To date over 900 youth have already received employment. 

On behalf of IYF, thank you for your gifts to support the Young Entrepreneurs program.  It is through the generosity of donors such as you that IYF is able to further our mission of preparing young people to be healthy, productive and engaged citizens.  We will continue to work hard to reach more youth with true impact and measurable results.  Thank you again for your generosity.
