Young Social Entrepreneurs 2011

Our Young Social Entrepreneurs (YSE) programme seeks to inspire, equip and enable youths of different nationalities to embark on social enterprise in Singapore and beyond.

By empowering youths with skills to make social enterprises far more successful, the YSE programme is literally making a world of difference in the business landscape
Those who successfully pitched their ideas also benefit from a two-month mentorship and an overseas study trip
Ye Xi, winner of the Best Business Plan award, says: "I have a better understanding of how a social enterprise should be operated and how we should ensure the sustainability of the business."
Over three days, YSE participants were coached on how to develop business plans, assess their social impact, market their businesses through social media and raise funds
22 participants from Azerbaijan, China, Indonesia, Singapore, Tanzania, Thailand and Vietnam participated in the programme
We held our second instalment of the Young Social Entrepreneur programme in March 2011
