Gen-E is the largest European Entrepreneurship Festival, combining two annual European entrepreneurship contests — the Company of the Year Competition (CoYC) and the European Enterprise Challenge (EEC).
Gen-E is a celebration of entrepreneurship and the achievements of European students, where thousands of young entrepreneurs, 15 years old onwards, will showcase their cutting–edge business ideas and will be competing for the titles of best Company and best Start-Up of the year.
But what is Gen-E? It’s all of us: Boomers, Gen X, Millennials and Gen Z. Europeans who believe in the importance of Education, Entrepreneurship and Employment. The ones who choose action over inertia and see in every situation an opportunity. A new generation of entrepreneurs, of heroes who challenge the world for the better.
This year, Gen-E 2021 is virtually hosted in Lithuania by JA Lithuania from 29 June to 15 July 2021.
The Gen-E final event will take place on 15 July 2021, on the UNESCO World Youth Skills Day, dedicated to reimagining Youth Skills Post Pandemic.
