Young entrepreneurs: German Westerwelle Young Founders Programme is looking for you

The Westerwelle Foundation is looking for entrepreneurs from developing and emerging countries to participate in its Young Founders Programme.

The programme will take place over the course of a year and those accepted will have access to mentoring, online coaching and webinars, international alumni network, as well as invitations and scholarships to entrepreneurship conferences.

Participants will also attend the Young Founders Conference in Berlin, Germany, which takes place on 13 to 16 September. Accommodation and travel will be covered by the Westerwelle Foundation.

The Young Founders Conference looks to connect young entrepreneurs with each other as well as the German startup scene, successful entrepreneurs, and political decision makers.

The organisation looks to connect young entrepreneurs, executives, and decision makers from around the world for collaboration.
