Last week, our team in The Hague had the pleasure of hosting a live workshop with the Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) of the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Orange Corners started collaborating with the YAC in November last year to develop the Orange Corners persona: a profile outline of the young and ambitious entrepreneur for whom we can make most impact.
During the workshop, the YAC members conducted live-interviews with several Orange Corners alumni to better understand their day-to-day world as entrepreneurs and used this input to fill out empathy maps. The workshop ended with a lively discussion on the shared experiences – but also the unique differences – of our alumni as they work tirelessly to grow their business.
A big, big thank you to all YAC members for their time and contributions!
About the YAC
To give young people a voice in its policy processes, the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in collaboration with the National Youth Council (NJR), has set up the Youth Advisory Committee. From among more than 2,000 applications, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and NJR selected ten young people from ten different countries to form the Youth Advisory Committee.
