“Let’s invest in innovative entrepreneurs, the striving young people who embrace new technology and are starting new businesses and can ignite new industries that are changing the world. I have met young people on every continent, and they can lead the way, if we give them the tools they need.”

- Barack Obama, speaking at the UN Sustainable Development Summit in September. The summit agreed on 17 global goals, including support for creative financing, innovative technology, social entrepreneurship and job creation.
