We wanted to let you know that a group called YE Young Entrepreneurs have been making contact directly with some YE student companies and requesting to set up What¿s App groups and Skype meetings. Young Entrepreneurs are not part of Young Enterprise or connected to Young Enterprise in any way. We are following up with Young Entrepreneurs to request they do not contact YE student companies. In the meantime please do not reply if they make contact with you or your student company. Please do let us know if they contact you or your Young Enterprise team directly by emailing email@example.com.
