In conjunction with the 8th World Chambers Congress taking place in Doha, Qatar April 22-25 2013, the International Chamber of Commerce has launched its newest addition of the World Chambers Competition. This competition is the only global awards program to recognize innovative projects undertaken by chambers from all over the world. Including organizations from both the developed world and emerging countries, the 2013 World Chambers Competition provides a unique opportunity for chambers to showcase originality and ingenuity.
Among the categories in which chambers can compete is “Best Youth Entrepreneurship Project.” To compete in this category, organizations must have developed a project that showcases the importance of youth entrepreneurship. Support programs and services geared towards helping entrepreneurs get started or expand their business are ideal programs for fostering entrepreneurship and are perfect submissions for the competition. To qualify, any project submitted must have been in operation within a 24 month period preceding January 2013 and applications must be submitted by November 30, 2012. Finalists will be chosen and notified by February 2013 and will be judged before a jury at the World Chambers Conference in April. For more information and to apply, visit the ICC website.
