Over the years, we at ThinkYoung have reached the conclusion that cultural barriers, such as the stigma of failure, need to be overcome in order to boost youth entrepreneurship.

 Together with DG Enterprise and Industry, ThinkYoung is analysing the bankruptcy laws in six countries across the EU.


The aim is to understand the best and worst practices that are held when it comes to bankruptcy, and the financial affects it has on the entrepreneur involved.


The conclusion will be a written policy proposal given to the European Commision

on ways to improve laws for legal bankruptcy across the EU.

For more information regarding this proposal please email alessandro@thinkyoung.eu.


On December 18, 2013 ThinkYoung organised a conference at the

European Parliament as a first step to change bankruptcy law for start-ups.
