AmCham Next Generation aims to become a reference among networks for young active people, helping them build long-standing relationships based on a common business and innovation focus. Our vision is to attract and gather a young dynamic innovation-driven community in order to give them the exciting opportunity to benefit from AmCham’s experience with companies operating on both continents and its solid understanding of transatlantic relations and economics. The main goal of the program is the development of a new generation of promising young leaders, experts and trend-setters. The key missions are creating a network of young, innovative and dynamic individuals, developing a forum with inspiring speeches and discussions and fostering intergenerational dialogue.
