4GenNow Brussels Power Partners Summit


"Building a vision for Intergenerational Entrepreneurship:
EU and US perspectives."

4GenNow in collaboration with the 50+EPE are bringing together interested stakeholders to take stock of current intergenerational entrepreneurship initiatives in the EU and US. Our initiative is to build recommendations to maximize the positive impact of the new domain from an economical, as well as societal, perspective.

- Take stock of intergenerational entrepreneurship practices and environment in the EU and US
- Recommend as a group a working definition of "intergenerational entrepreneurship" to serve the relevant community
- Assess the (perceived) socio-economic benefits of intergenerational entrepreneurship and the impact of new collaborative trends (e.g. sharing economy)
- Share testimonials from entrepreneurs involved in intergenerational projects
- Together with audience, assess recommendations for upcoming EU administration establishment
- Showcase leading companies that are developing initiatives in this domain and allow them to raise awareness of their actions and build positive relationships with interested stakeholders
