  • On behalf of the Young Entrepreneurs Forum (YEF) of the Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ICCI), it is my great pleasure to extend a warm welcome to you at the 1st YEF conference taking place on Tuesday 27th March 2012 in the Convention Centre, Islamabad.

    YEF was established in 2008 with the vision of creating a nurturing platform, through a strong network of established entrepreneurs and industry professionals, to support budding entrepreneurs as they take their first tentative steps towards shaping their futures. This conference is a platform for interface between policy makers, industry professionals, investor’s, established and budding entrepreneurs with the clear aim of highlighting barriers, sharing best practice and experiences and also creating that elusive networking opportunity.

    One element YEF is keen to address is the barriers that prevent aspiring entrepreneurs from taking that first step. We intend to document these barriers and become champions that would advocate for those people that do not have a voice, lobbying policy makers to make transitioning into entrepreneurship easier.

    YEF is committed to this cause and will continue to advocate for a positive change on behalf of all those aspiring young people who dream of one day being a part of a strong and dynamic group of professionals who choose to make their own way in life.

    I hope you have a positive experience and leave this conference with a clear message that YEF will be the voice for all those people who are not heard. YEF along with ICCI, our partners and donors look forward to your participation.
