Within the G20 YEA the UK is lead jointly by two organisations. These are Young Brits Network and Youth Business International.
The YoungBrits Network is the body that represents young entrepreneurs and the organisations that support them in the UK, at an international level.
YoungBrits acts as the UK representative on the G20 Young Entrepreneurs Alliance and The European Confederation of Young Entrepreneurs and works with membership bodies with a national reach in the UK to engage with these international organisations and promote unique opportunities to young entrepreneurs in their networks. YoungBrits has been established to champion the views and interests of young entrepreneurs in the UK, ensuring their voices will be heard and influence on a global scale.

Youth Business International is a global network of independent non-profit initiatives helping young people to start and grow their own business and create employment. HRH The Prince of Wales is our President.
YBI members assist under-served young entrepreneurs with a combination of training, access to capital, mentoring and other business development services. They adapt this common approach to their local context, working in partnership with governments, businesses and multilateral and civil society organisations. In 2011, YBI supported 7,800 young people to start up in business in 34 countries. A London-based network team drives network growth, quality and performance.
