YBI is a global network of independent non-profit initiatives helping young people start and grow their own business and create employment. Working with governments, businesses and multi-lateral and civil society organisations, network members assist young entrepreneurs who are unable to find support elsewhere, with a combination of access to capital, volunteer mentoring, and other business development services. A London-based management team is responsible for increasing the capacity and efficiency of our members, providing technical assistance, sharing knowledge, developing common tools and quality standards, generating resources, and expanding the network into new countries. YBI was founded in 2000 and is one of The Princes Charities, of which HRH The Prince of Wales is President. YBI spans 35 countries across six continents.
