Youth Entrepreneurship Forum

Kazan OIC Youth Entrepreneurship Forum is an annual large-scale international youth entrepreneurship activity. The organizers of the annual Kazan – OIC Youth Entrepreneurship Forum are: Government of the Republic of Tatarstan, Eurasian Regional Center of Islamic Cooperation Youth Forum (ICYF-ERC), Tatarstan Republic Youth Social Fund “Selet”. The Forum will be held in partnership with Academy of Youth Diplomacy and Kazan IT Park, among others. The 2020 Kazan Forum is intended for early stage startups with proven MVPs from the OIC region. These startups typically would have raised a family and friends round or no funding at all. The reality of the coronavirus pandemic has exposed the vulnerabilities of the world as well as the opportunities for technology to help mitigate many problems. The OIC has been one of the worst hit regions with declining incomes from oil and gas and a declining global demand for commodities, it is indeed a tough time.
