Course of the Competition

The Programme Year began in August 2023 with more than 1,000 students and almost 200 mini-enterprises. To qualify among the best 25 mini-enterprises, the teams had to pass two selections with different criteria.

In a first step, the best 75 mini-enterprises were selected and assessed according to their business plan and their presence at a YES sales event. Through the evaluation of the business report and further interviews with YES Alumni and Programme Managers, the Top 25 were then selected, which are now competing to win the whole competition and the various Awards.
