About 25 members of YI from across the India have been selected to represent India in the summit.

With this year’s summit being based on the theme of ‘Young entrepreneurs shaping the future; solutions for jobs, innovation and global growth’, we look forward to playing an active role in these facts as India continue to shape the emerging world order.”
Mihir Merchant said in the summit delegates will focus on solutions to address critical issues facing all G-20 countries, including ways governments, academia, NGOs and business communities can work together to provide aspiring young entrepreneurs with foundational support to ensure their success.
