The Entrepreneurship has been widespread in Europe, mainly from the 1990 and be an entrepreneur today is almost a must, because behind new ideas that has been revolutionizing society, there is always a visionary, that with his talent, in addition to the analysis, planning and implementation capacity, is responsible for successful ventures. However, the concept of entrepreneur is not limited to the words "small business owner" used on a daily basis. The concept embedded in entrepreneurship has a magnitude greater than the business itself and is transcending the purely economic field to other areas.
It is important that the European institutions and its policies involve more youth integration above all when is related with youth with few opportunities that face obstacles of inclusion in their society. Now more than ever the youth employment and youth entrepreneurship are themes that need to have more bet to guarantee the success sustainable development of Europe.
What we are seen now is lack of youth investment in Europe and the reduced budget allocated for youth when the European policies is focused on youth field, although the new program defined by European Commission from 2014-2015. There is a need not only include youth in keys areas of decisions makers, by public and private sector, but also give space to the youth to highlight their creativity and innovation for sustainable development of Europe and at same time for social cohesion and inclusion.
