The Young Entrepreneur Series (YES) is an initiative by the White House and the SBA to connect young and aspiring entrepreneurs with SBA officials, local business advisors and resources to help them start or grow their own small business.
Entrepreneurship among young people remains below average and young entrepreneurs face unique challenges. With youth unemployment twice the national average in many communities, particularly communities of color and veterans, the Obama administration recognizes a need to promote and better support the efforts of young people to create jobs for themselves and others. The YES forums are part of a larger effort to reach out to young people and let them know the federal government has tools to help them start, grow and succeed as small business owners.
