The article reveals the role and functions of youth technology entrepreneurship in the ecosystem of innovative development of the region, analyzes the experience of youth technology entrepreneurship development in the Kemerovo region, develops recommendations for further enhancing this type of entrepreneurship. The study used the methods of functional analysis, summarizing and systematizing the data of personal included observation. A set of functions of youth technology entrepreneurship in the innovation ecosystem of the region was developed and substantiated, taking into account the characteristics of innovation ecosystems in transition economies. It is concluded that regional universities, in particular, supporting universities, have a higher significance than other organizations in a transition economy. The conceptual foundations of the youth technology entrepreneurship development system formed in the Kemerovo Region on the basis of the Kemerovo State University are disclosed. It is based on a modified start-up funnel, which allows you to determine the quantitative parameters of participants in events at different stages. The first results of a quantitative assessment of the implementation of the socio-cultural, institutional, infrastructural functions of youth technology entrepreneurship in the framework of the Insight technology business school are given. It is concluded that the third stage of the funnel startups is characterized by an insufficient level of organizational and economic functions. To solve this problem, a number of practical recommendations are proposed for coordinating the supply and demand for new technologies in youth technology entrepreneurship projects. The results of the work can serve as a basis for analyzing and summarizing the practices of the development of youth technological entrepreneurship in different regions of the country, subsequent fundamental quantitative studies of the interrelationships of youth technological entrepreneurship and the innovation ecosystems of the regions.

Keywords: youth technology entrepreneurship, region, region's innovation ecosystem, innovations, supporting university.
