SAGE Global Overview

“Students for the Advancement of Global Entrepreneurship is a global community of teenage entrepreneurs sharing a common purpose: to make the world a better place. Our mission is to create the next generation of entrepreneurial leaders whose innovations and social enterprises address the major unmet needs of our global community. SAGE Global is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to teenage entrepreneurs. Our youth entrepreneurship program bridges two divides. The first divide is among secondary education, higher education and the private sector. The second divide is across countries and cultures. Global challenges, such as environmental sustainability, alternative energy and transportation, and concerns caused by global climate change, pose common threats. Thankfully, entrepreneurs with a global worldview see such threats as opportunities. In today’s increasingly complex world, cross-cultural cooperation in entrepreneurial ventures can raise standards of living if the right environment is created. One way to create such an environment is to focus on one key stakeholder— teenagers—for it is youth who have the most at stake. ”
