This week in Buenos Aires, young entrepreneurs from Latin America are seeing if their projects can make a difference and contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals.

Ten finalist teams in the 'Comprometidos' Challenge are participating in a week of acceleration in Buenos Aires. They will receive expert mentoring from Nestlé, training, and the opportunity to exchange with other Latin American young people with whom they share the enthusiasm to change the world.

Nestlé is partnering with Ashoka, the world’s leading network of social entrepreneurs, as well as Socialab and UNESCO, to organize the 'Comprometidos' Challenge. Teams of young people were invited to find solutions to sustainable packaging, education, digital transformation and agripreneurship. More than 700 projects were submitted.

Since 2013, the Nestlé Needs YOUth initiative is a Nestlé commitment aimed at contributing to the preparation and training of the next generations. The Nestlé Needs YOUth initiative - 'Comprometidos' Challenge supports the Nestlé Needs YOUth initiative and its global ambition to help 10 million young people around the world have access to economic opportunities by 2030.
