Thinking young in Belgium

Sep 10, 2012

Our students of today are the leaders of tomorrow. As they think ahead to their future, we should be helping to lead the way.

In Belgium, Amway is working with an innovative think tank and youth lobby organization called Think Young, which is preparing future entrepreneurs for life after school.

Over the summer, 80 students took part in a program that provided exposure to the business world, with direct access to successful businesspeople, including Belgian Amway Business Owners.


The conversations focused on the importance of fostering a strong entrepreneurial culture in Europe. Group discussions were followed by an official conference in the European Parliament, hosted by two elected Members of the European Parliament MEP Comi and MEP Zalba.

The best experience is often as simple as available mentors. We can be the models for the future business owners and leaders … if we think young.

Thanks to Karin Schmid and Sarah Wellner for sharing this story.
