The Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition is a global program and an online platform to mobilize youth-led innovations for the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The program fosters entrepreneurship education and incites young people around the world to develop their inherent entrepreneurial skills and talents according to the motto: everybody is a potential entrepreneur.
Co-organized by the Goi Peace Foundation, Stiftung Entrepreneurship and Digital Experts United, the Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition has two components: 1) The Entrepreneurship Campus and 2) The Competition.
1. The Entrepreneurship Campus
The Entrepreneurship Campus is a multi-opportunity online platform, where young entrepreneurs and innovators can register and be part of a global online community and learn to develop their entrepreneurial skills. Young people from all regions of the world are currently active on the Campus, exchanging their ideas and knowledge about entrepreneurship and supporting each other to develop their ideas and projects. The Campus Administrative Team supports Campus members with resource materials and by offering one-on-one advice upon request on a daily basis. Young people also have the opportunity to take a free online course in entrepreneurship education and refine their entrepreneurial skills.
2. The Competition
The Competition is the second component of the program. Campus members are invited to submit their innovative ideas and projects with a societal impact, which champions and implements one or more of the 17 SDGs. After a screening process by the Campus Administrative Team, entries are posted for online voting and feedback from the public.
Winners of the Competition are announced at the annual Entrepreneurship Summit in Berlin and receive international recognition.

I am glad to be part of this Campus. I believe this platform will help scale my ideas to a higher level and ultimately win the competition.
The Entrepreneurship Campus is interesting and has life in it. The contents and modules are highly creative and encourage learning by doing.
This platform really provides an opportunity to test your ideas and get feedback from fellow entrepreneurs.
