Among the national activities for the promotion of entrepreneurship culture it is worth mentioning the National Contest of Young Entrepreneurs (Certamen Nacional de Jóvenes Emprendedores). Organised by the Youth Institute, young entrepreneurs less than 35 years of age with entrepreneurial projects may participate.
