The world urgently needs economic growth and accelerated job creation. However, in emerging markets, enterprise growth and expansion is bottle-necked by a shortage of adequate talent. Meanwhile, millions of young people around the world are confront unemployment. This dual problem of enterprise talent shortage and youth unemployment may be addressed in a bold and fundamentally unified manner. In emerging economies, enterprises battling talent shortage can unblock growth by focusing on the potential fortune at the bottom of the talent pyramid. In the process, they will impart skills and employment to millions of youth. Our proposed solution is TEN Youth.
