From April 18th to the 20th, the 4th edition of the Junior World Entrepreneurship Forum (JWEF) will be held in Lyon, an event designed in partnership with the Société Générale and sponsored by EMLYON Business School.
The Junior World Entrepreneurship Forum is a worldwide community of young impact-driven entrepreneurs and change-makers and promotes youth entrepreneurship globally; a mission shared by the core values of EMLYON Business School operating under the motto “Educating Entrepreneurs for the World.”
The theme of this year’s forum in Lyon is “Entrepreneurs’ response to the socio-economic crisis”. During the three-day event, you will be able to meet successful entrepreneurs coming from the academic, political and economic world who all foster social justice and have the same goal: share their views on the socio-economic crisis and bring key points to the table to help solve this world issue. Exceptional speakers such as Philippe Heim, Worldwide CFO of Société Générale, Stéphane Treppoz, founder of Sarenza.com, or Jean-Marc Borello, founder of France’s largest Social-business group, will be present at the event. The last day will be particularly dedicated to the topic: "Entrepreneurs: navigating change for sustainable growth".
The aim is to exchange and develop proposals that will be gathered and published in a White Paper, which the JWEF France team will present during the next edition of the World Entrepreneurship Forum, the world’s first think-and-do-tank dedicated to entrepreneurship, from October 30th to November 2nd 2013 in Singapore.
