How AIESEC connects startups and youth

AIESEC is the world’s largest youth-led network creating positive impact through personal development and shared global experiences. We strive for Peace and Fulfillment of humankind’s’ potential, by developing leadership in the youth promoting cross cultural exchanges.

Our cross cultural experiences are promoted by engaging youth and partners, who believe in change and impact. We work with different sectors and one of our main ones is the entrepreneur environment as nowadays, startups are booming and are a critical part of the future: in their 2016 report, the CTI wrote that 396 companies got the Start-up label since 1996, and this number that escalates more every year. As an organization, AIESEC believes startups are the right environment to foster the entrepreneurial mindset in youth and develop the skills they will need for the future.

Practically speaking, how do we connect youth and start ups?

With our Global Entrepreneur, we connect young talented people from all over the world to start ups opportunities through our Opportunities’ platform. After applying, we select the most suitable candidate for a 6 week to 3 month volunteer project related to the company’s needs and job description.
