From Tottenham to G20 Summit: Young Black Entreprenuer Shares Experience on Global Stage

Nathaniel Peat is amongst just three young British entrepreneurs who have been selected to represent Britain at the G20 Young Entrepreneur Summit in Canada (June 20-22). Nathaniel is the successful entrepreneur behind award winning business, The Safety Box which was launched in 2007 to proactively address the growing concern of knife crime, gun crime and anti-social behaviour. In 2009 he appeared on the BBC’s The Last Millionaire and is now set to share his experience on a global stage. The Tottenham raised successful entrepreneur and pilot will join two other representatives as a UK delegate with Enterprise UK and the Institute of Directors (IoD) in attending the G20 Young Entrepreneur Summit in Toronto, Canada.

Key topics for discussion at the summit will be access to funding, coordinated support, entrepreneurship culture, regulation and taxation, education and training. Peter Grigg, Enterprise UK’s Head of Policy & Research, says: “It’s a great opportunity to influence a global strategy for encouraging entrepreneurship among young people. The UK entrepreneurs have all been successful at a young age and can call on their experiences to inspire others.”

The Summit, taking place in Toronto, Canada June 20-22, 2010, will assemble delegations from the G20 nations to identify and examine the issues impeding young entrepreneurs around the world. The discussions will result in the development of a communiqué identifying shared key policy issues and approaches. This information will be presented to the G20 Leaders to help them to maximize the economic potential of young entrepreneurs in their respective economies.

The inaugural G20 Young Entrepreneur Summit aims to get global commitment to the role of youth entrepreneurship in shaping future economies. It will celebrate the successes of young entrepreneurs, identify the challenges that face them, and bring the importance of youth enterprise to the attention of the G20 leaders. The intention is to establish the Young Entrepreneur Summit as an annual event that, moving forward, will be held in conjunction with the official G20 Summit.
