Junior Chamber International (JCI) is one of the world’s largest network of young leaders and entrepreneurs. JCI Creative Young Entrepreneur Award (CYEA) was first launched in 2005 by JCI.
JCI Mauritius took the challenge of hosting its first national JCI CYEA in 2013. In its endeavour to recognise and support outstanding examples of creativity in the Mauritian society, once again, this year, JCI Mauritius will soon be launching the 5th Edition of JCI Mauritius CYEA. The award will be hosted by JCI Port Louis, which is one of the five local organisations of JCI Mauritius.
The theme of this year’s edition is “To Vizion Se Lavenir Nou Pei”.
The 2018 JCI Mauritius CYEA recognises, celebrates and honours exceptional young entrepreneurs who have started a business using creativity or have improved an existing business through innovative problem solving.
The competition is open to all entrepreneurs between the ages of 18 and 40, JCI members and non-members alike.
We are looking for creative young entrepreneurs that have started a new business using creativity in product development, service development, and in their approach to the market or, they have taken an existing business and incorporated creativity to solve a problem, or change a process, to create positive change in their business operations. Our communities are full of young entrepreneurs who have used their imagination in solving problems and approaching the market. Our efforts in promoting this contest will assist in learning about, and honouring, these young entrepreneurs in the Mauritian community.
