Are you a young European innovator with a big idea?

The 2024 Youth Start-Up Competition (YSC) is open to young pioneers – aged between 18 and 25 years old – with innovative start-up ideas for shaping a better future for Europe.

The top three innovators will be invited to attend the SME Assembly in Budapest, Hungary, from November 18-20, 2024, where they will have the opportunity to showcase their solutions and connect with potential investors and partners.

Young pioneers are asked to submit a short video, no more than three minutes, pitching their idea and a brief business plan. The deadline for entries is 20 September, 2024.
