AmCham Youth Entrepreneurship Award 2019

By October 7, 2020 No Comments

Since 2013, the AmCham EU Youth Entrepreneurship Award puts youth entrepreneurship in the spotlight by showcasing young people who have participated in a JA programme, made it past the initial start-up phase and have a business concept with strong growth potential. Five candidates were shortlisted to take part in the online finale on 12 September 2019, in the presence of a high-level jury panel that selected the top 3 to be invited to AmCham EU’s annual gala on 2 October in Brussels, attended by stakeholders and AmCham EU members alike.

At a time when European agriculture is facing unprecedented challenges, from production efficiency to sustainability and resilience, Estonian start-up eAgronom was awarded the prize based on its contribution to biodiversity and environmental sustainability. The winner received a cash prize of €10,000 and was offered several hours of mentorship over a 12-month period from senior executives from AmCham EU’s member companies. The other two finalists included Bioby from Spain and Edumus from Estonia.
