In order to help global young entrepreneurs develop strongly and enhance their development momentum, the Overseas Community Affairs Council, ROC (Taiwan) (OCAC) held the Global Young Entrepreneur Stars Selection contest last year for the first time and it was very well-received. This year, the Selection was held for the second time and saw very enthusiastic participation, with 69 young entrepreneurs in 21 countries on six continents registering. The results of judging were announced on May 11, with 30 people winning the honor of being named "Global Young Entrepreneur Stars".
OCAC Deputy Minister Hsu Chia-Ching chaired the selection meeting as well as being a judge. She said that every participating young entrepreneur was really excellent and that competition was fierce. It was unfortunate that some contestants did not receive the award due to the limited number of places. She expressed the hope that young entrepreneurs continue to take part in Global Young Entrepreneur Stars Selection in future.
The OCAC invited elites from domestic enterprises, government departments, research & development institutes, overseas chambers of commerce and other areas to form a seven-person judging committee. A physical and video judging meeting was held on May 11. Through the two stages of preliminary review of documentation and final review, the selection was carried out on the basis of the criteria of organizational position, operating innovation, marketing, and financial governance of the young entrepreneurs' enterprises. Of the 30 awardees, eight were women and 22 men; 13 were from North America, eight from Asia, three from Europe, three from Oceania, two from Central and South America and one from Africa. The winners will receive one-on-one consulting from expert consultants and business mentors as well as assistance with enterprise promotion and experience sharing through various media channels to help them grow and improve; customized projects will also be provided to help them link with domestic industry-academic cooperation units and research & development institutes to create a win-win situation.
