About CAAYE Summit 2014

Innovate with Purpose

Towards a Sustainable Entrepreneurship Ecosystem

- November 2014, Bandar Seri Begawan

CAAYE has a mission to create and sustain a recognized body that exists as part of the official Commonwealth process and is able to engage, contribute to and impact the work of the Commonwealth to raise awareness and address the issues of young entrepreneurs.


  • 1. a network that, through its engagement with governments, the media, the public, all relevant stakeholders and member organizations, champions the cause of young entrepreneurs at the local, national, regional and international level; and
  • 2. an alliance of organizations from economies of the Commonwealth-Asia region that makes measurable progress towards development of entrepreneurship to ensure future prosperity.

The 3rd edition of CAAYE Young Entrepreneur Summit will be hosted in Brunei Darussalam, following the success of previous summits in Mumbai (2012) and Colombo (2013).
