Initiate Young Talent Programme

Milan overview with lights

Milan Enlit Europe 2020

The fostering and nurturing of young talent is a central pillar of Initiate, whether a young professional at the beginning of their career or a final-year student.

This year, we are creating a bespoke Young Talent Programme, where students who are approaching graduation and want to work in the industry and young professionals (under-30) will get genuine opportunities to learn about the industry and where it is heading, network and make key industry contacts for the future.

We are once again running our exciting and fun on-site Young Talent Challenges aimed at students.

Ask the Expert

A new addition to the Young Talent Programme, Ask the Expert is where students and young professionals get a genuinely unique learning opportunity by questioning a panel of key industry practitioners – from both the solutions side and the end-user.
