Giving your project wings: #EYA Mentors

What makes success? An inspiring idea, a vision, new technology? All of that and more is to be found in the European Youth Award’s winning projects. But there is one thing young start-ups are missing: yearlong business experience.

Called into life in 2014, the EYA mentorship program aims to offer exactly that. Every EYA winning project taken under a mentor’s wing. EYA’s outstanding mentors are international top level entrepreneurs and business managers. We cordially thank for their support!
