The Overseas Community Affairs Council (OCAC) first Global Junior Entrepreneurship Stars Selection received an enthusiastic response from overseas compatriots and attracted many entries. The decision of the judges was announced on April 6, with 30 having the honor of being named Global Junior Entrepreneurship Stars. Congratulations to the winning participants.
The OCAC invited a panel of judges, who made their selection based on the four indicators of the organizational position, operational innovation, marketing and financial governance of the junior entrepreneurs’ enterprises. Of the 30 outstanding winners, 13 were women and 17 men; the performance and potential of female entrepreneurs showed they can keep up with the men. An attending judge said that all the participants performed outstandingly; it is by no means easy to develop a business overseas. This competition is intended to encourage them to develop their business and deepen links with Taiwan and, as such, is very meaningful.
OCAC Minister Tung Cheng-yuan pointed out that young entrepreneurs are Taiwan’s treasure trove and they have unlimited future potential. To assist young entrepreneurs around the world grow strong and link the advantages of Taiwan and the overseas community to increase their power and capabilities, the OCAC held the Global Junior Entrepreneurship Stars Selection for the first time this year, inviting young entrepreneurs aged under 40 who are persons in charge or senior managers of overseas enterprises to compete against each other.
