About GEP

The Global Enterprise Project (GEP) is a unique campaign under the Company Programme umbrella that involved hundreds of business people from diverse global companies to raise young people's awareness on globalisation, foster entrepreneurship and reinforce the skills they need for the modern workforce. 

The aim of the project is to:

  • Close the skills gap between business and education.
  • Equip young people with skills they need to succeed in a global economy.  
  • Inspire young people to be more entrepreneurial and enterprising to:​ start companies,​ bring entrepreneurial skills and thinking into large companies and public institutions, and manage their career choices and their lives. 


The project started from the collaboration between the European Round Table of Industrialists (ERT) and JA-YE Europe in order to promote greater understanding and awareness among young people about globalisation, entrepreneurship and the skills they need to succeed in the global economy.
