The Chamber of Commerce of Aegean Region Chamber of Commerce, Izmir, Turkey chairs the ASCAME Commission of Young Entrepreneurs.

When the countries which have achieved economical improvement in the globalizing world are reviewed, it becomes clear that the economical structure should be entrepreneurial and innovative in order to improve the industrial structure, raise the competitive strength, increase the employment and improve the level of income. Training young entrepreneurs therefore becomes more important in order to revive our region, namely the Mediterranean.

Based on developments in technology and faster access to information sources, entrepreneurship should be improved and encouraged in Mediterranean countries. It represents a driving force regarding the development of our region and its influence at the international level.

The mission of the Young Entrepreneur Commission is to produce opinions and policies on reviving, supporting and improving the young entrepreneurial spirit in the Mediterranean Region.

The goal of the Commission is to spread the formation all over the Mediterranean and determine the policies related to improvement of the young entrepreneurial potential present in the region.

In order to reach our goal:

  • ¬†Assistance in learning personal development shall be provided for young people in order to enable them to create opportunities for career improvement
  • Young entrepreneurs shall be supported with regards to business establishment and successful continuation of business alongside training and capacity development.

  • Seminaries, forums, panels and meetings, etc. shall be held with regards to this issue; and endeavors shall be made in order to raise the Mediterranean Young entrepreneurial spirit.
