About YES 2017

Since 2004, The Young Entrepreneurs Symposium (YES) has brought together young Aboriginal entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs-to-be together with business leaders and role models.

YES provides an opportunity for young entrepreneurs to raise their profile in the business world, highlighting their skills, driving attitude and innovative ideas. YES is also an opportunity to connect with peers, building the business network of tomorrow’s influencers. Delegates have access to top-level business acumen delivered by seasoned entrepreneurs that is absorbed to further personal and professional development. At YES, young Aboriginal entrepreneurs sharpen their vision and add confidence to their dreams.
