YSE 2018 Mumbai Workshop

The Young Social Entrepreneurs (YSE) 2018 Mumbai Workshop was held from 26 to 29 September 2018 as part of a series of workshops organised by the SIF to reach out to more young social entrepreneurs around the world. Into its second edition, the 2018 workshop brought together 39 young Indian changemakers from 20 social enterprises to connect and learn from 28 speakers and mentors from diverse sectors in the India and Singapore social entrepreneurship ecosystem.
