2024 G20 YEA Summit in Brazil

Futurpreneur is looking for 45 of the brightest diverse young entrepreneurs to represent Canada at the 2024 G20 Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance Summit hosted by Brazil’s National Confederation of Young Entrepreneurs (CONAJE).

The Summit will take place in Goiânia, Brazil from June 12-14, followed by optional city visits in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, and Florianopolis from June 15-16. Futurpreneur-led Canadian delegation activities are set to take place before the Summit from June 9-11.

How it works

In-person International Summit

The G20 YEA Summit will be held in person in Goiânia, Brazil. We will lead the full delegation in Brazil for Canadian trade activities organized by Futurpreneur. Canadian delegation briefing activities will be held online.  

The delegation will be able to connect digitally in advance of the Summit, alongside 300+ young entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial leaders from across the G20 countries via the G20 YEA App. 

Canadian delegation Summit activities

Futurpreneur is hosting pre-summit activities for the Canadian delegation, offering a robust agenda filled with networking and trade opportunities. Futurpreneur will also be leading the Policy Taskforce consultations for Canadian delegates to inform the drafting of the 2024 Communiqué. 

Canadian delegates will meet virtually in advance of the summit to participate in a variety of business-building, policy-making and networking activities with government officials, international trade organizations, consular trade representatives/business associations from G20 countries and Trade Commissioner Services. 

The aim this year is to provide safe, interactive and inclusive G20 trade opportunities to a diverse group of young entrepreneurs from across  the Canadian international trade landscape including women, members of equity-seeking communities including Black, Indigenous, newcomers, 2SLGTBQIA+  and people living with disabilities.
