Welcome to the Youth Entrepreneurship Policy Academy Hub

An OECD-EU policy-learning network to strengthen youth entrepreneurship

About the project

The Youth Entrepreneurship Policy Academy (YEPA) is a policy-learning network of 150 participants, including policymakers, youth entrepreneurship networks and organisations, social entrepreneurship networks, programme managers and researchers.

The YEPA aims to strengthen youth entrepreneurship policies and programmes by raising knowledge about the barriers faced by young people in entrepreneurship and facilitating exchanges between policy makers, young entrepreneurs and experts on “what works” in youth entrepreneurship policy.
