Global: Ye! Youth Ecopreneur Program



    The Ye! Youth Ecopreneur Program is a global accelerator that powers the green and just transition by investing in young entrepreneurs as catalysts for sustainable development, environmental justice, and advocacy for climate action. The project seeks to enhance the competitiveness and scale of youth-led green businesses, with a strong focus on land restoration. Through a Global Bootcamp, Accelerator, and Youth Ecopreneur Awards, it provides comprehensive support, including training, mentorship, and financial support, to youth-led green businesses. Partners include the G20 Global Land Initiative, WIPO, Sidley Austin LLP, and Google Startup for Sustainable Development. The five-year Program is designed as a multi-stakeholder initiative  that allows ITC projects and partners to opt-in, leveraging and scaling within the existing structure. The acceleration program onboards new participants every year.
