Youth and Climate Entrepreneurship Exchange
This exchange will focus on entrepreneurship and innovation in the climate change sphere, including renewable energy; energy efficiency and sustainability; environmental engineering; climate adaptation; resilient and clean technologies; carbon reduction; food production; design; or other innovative fields addressing climate challenges today and in the future. The goal is to provide university students, business start-up leaders, and founders between 20 and 25 residing permanently in Austria with intensive, hands-on entrepreneurship education and leadership development training, as well as a greater understanding of U.S-Austrian collaboration on business-focused climate change solutions.
Entrepreneurs help countries respond to specific problems, demands, or gaps in the market by identifying and pursuing new business opportunities; entrepreneurs and startups generate economic value, create jobs, and accelerate development, while often delivering social and environmental benefits for the customers and communities they serve.[A1] As such, this program should give participants first-hand and theoretical knowledge of founding, financing, and growing a startup in climate change-focused sectors, as well as how to maintain momentum and spur additional growth through programming, promotion, and networking opportunities.
Nonprofits having a 501(c)(3) status with the IRS, other than institutions of higher education.
