The Emerging Entrepreneur Competition was launched by the YES Network Pakistan in partnership with the Sumar-Lakhani Foundation to enable young people, in particular socially excluded female youth, to experience the thrill of being an entrepreneur.
It helps young people to discover their entrepreneurial talents. It is designed to inspire and engage people in the fundamentals of entrepreneurship. The project stirs up a creative energy among people that has been dormant for many years.
It challenges people to change the way they think about entrepreneurship. The project helps people to move beyond their fears and turn their passion and skills into profitable enterprises. From this project, the people are provided an opportunity to start an enterprise, get access to capital or a product of their choice and sell their products and services. The project teaches the basic principles of enterprise development to people by a real approach.
