The Hong Kong General Chamber of Young Entrepreneurs (HKGCYE) has been founded by a group of young, enthusiastic, successful city entrepreneurs who have been supported by the Youth Business Hong Kong (YBHK) programme. The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups (HKFYG) received accreditation in 2005 from Youth Business International to establish YBHK and has now become the founding sponsor of HKGCYE. It has helped over 300 entrepreneurs to set up over 150 businesses. We believe that a thriving young entrepreneur community will generate a more dynamic economy and provide greater employment opportunities in the city.
