The purpose of the youth exchange is to fight youth unemployment by means of entrepreneurship. We want to bring together young women facing a variety of obstacles who want to start up their own business in the next 12 months.


The project has been inspired by the reality surrounding girls and young women who want to set up their own business. We want to support your ideas, help you develop them and find a market for them. We also want you to get inspired and coached by successful female entrepreneurs who have gone just the same way you are.

This project will listen to your specific needs and provide you with space to share and learn from each other. The ultimate goal of the project is to create a long-lasting supportive community of confident female entrepreneurs across borders.
