On November 23rd, all 92 Young Enterprise Project (YEP) participants had their first pitch in front of the jury. The 22 teams were divided into Group A and Group B, each being judged by three jury members. For Group A, the jury consisted of Gilles Feipel (Cactus), Bastien Berg (City Incubator) and Dominique Moeremans (École de Commerce et de Gestion). The Jury for Group B was composed of Thibaut Ciccone (Nyuko), Clémentine Offner (WeConnect) and Imene Guidoumi (Accenture). Two members of our team (Myriam Baustert and Jessie Fisch) were also present to take notes.
Check out the video below to see what some of the participants had to say about their first pitch and their overall experience with the YEP programme so far.
For the first pitch, Medikit and Honger an Méi, both from École d’Hôtellerie et de Tourisme du Luxembourg (EHTL) were awarded Best Elevator Pitch. Best Personal Pitch was won by Bethel Günther from Portal Butler (Lycée Technique d’Ettelbrück, LTETT) and Alexandre Bremer from Poseidon Hydrogen (LTETT). Each winner received a cinema ticket to see a movie of their choice.

The YOUNG ENTREPRISE PROJECT (YEP) programme is a pre-business creation learning programme. Groups of young people challenge themselves to identify an innovative, feasible and economically viable product or service idea and build a business model/business plan around it.
The YEP is aimed at students in higher education, in all categories, from both business and non-business backgrounds.
