Creative Young Entrepreneur Awards

The Creative Young Entrepreneur program is an international competition with a single main objective: To motivate and inspire enterprising young leaders. The core of the CYE program is for young leaders to showcase their up-and-running businesses.

CYE challenges young entrepreneurs to critically and creatively think by requiring them to provide an in-depth business plan, their marketing position, and strategic goals on how their venture will begin to earn a profit and become sustainable, all the while providing the opportunity of having that plan reviewed by delegated experts.
