Young Social Entrepreneur 2012 Pitching for Change forum

After an intense battle of ideas at the Young Social Entrepreneur (YSE) 2012 Pitching for Change forum, four teams - Bagosphere, Start Now, I.M. Pad and Young Sprout - came closer to realising their social enterprise visions when they were awarded seed funding to kickstart their enterprises.

For I.M.Pad, it's to produce cost-effective biodegradable sanitary pads made using unwanted water hyacinth plants, targeted at women in rural India
Bagosphere's vision is to set up a vocational training company that provides affordable & effective training for unemployed & disadvantaged rural youth in the Philippines
