draghi1This forum conclusions, compiled by 25 students of 12 countries, were presented to ECB’s president Mario Draghi

IE University students Ana Martínez Valls and Eric Cuevas, both with a strong entrepreneur character and studying the double degree in Law and Business Administration, have taken part this week in the Europe and Asia Regional Meeting, of Children and Youth Finance International, which took place in the European Central Bank headquarters.

The students were invited by social entrepreneurship leader Jeroo Billimoria, director of Child and Youth Finance International; a non-profit where Eric Cuevas has been working for two months thanks to an agreement with IE University. Both students were part of the group of 25 youngsters – all of them are less than 24 years old – of 12 countries who analyzed, in the ECB Headquarters, key issues as social entrepreneurship, the entrepreneurial spirit, the unemployment or the financial education, among other subjects. Eric Cuevas and Ana Martínez Valls could rely on their fellow IE University students, “they have helped us with their interactive answers on everything we posted, minute by minute, on Facebook and Twitter” they say.

After three days of work, the conclusions of this encounter were presented to the president of the European Central Bank, Mario Draghi, and other bankers, policy-makers and central bank governors, among other politic and economic high-level agents. The contents of the final proposition by Mario Draghi are available on:
