About this event

The SIF’s Young Social Entrepreneurs (YSE) Programme inspires, equips and enables youth who are passionate about making a difference, to embark on social enterprises around the world. It harnesses the power of youth and their ideas, together with networks of social entrepreneurs, business professionals and investors to solve social issues, create social value and build a better world through sustainable social enterprises. The programme has grown in breadth and depth since the inaugural workshop in 2010, counting some 60 institutional partners and a total of 350 alumni representing 18 different nationalities to date.

YSE Dialogue – “Nurturing Young Leaders For A Better World”

To inspire youth from around the world to become changemakers in society, we are holding a dialogue session exploring the various initiatives and collaborations in the region to support the next generation of changemakers – What does it take to groom the leaders of tomorrow? How do we encourage compassionate and innovation in youth? How can individuals, corporates and the government play a part, and how can we work together for greater impact? What are some of the successful youth-led initiatives we can learn from?

Speakers include Kuik Shao-yin, Co-founder of The Thought Collective, representative from the Business Indonesia Singapore Association (BISA) and YSE partner from India. The session will also be moderated by YSE alumnus, Keith Tan and co-founder of Start Now.

YSE 2015 Pitching for Change Showcase and Awards Ceremony

After the dialogue, we invite you to learn more about these social entrepreneurs and their work at the showcase, and to hear more about their YSE journey as well as join us in the announcement of the top five social enterprises at the reception. After an eight-month programme which began in March, 15 teams comprising 31 young changemakers representing six nationalities – Chinese (Hong Kong), Indian, Indonesian, Malaysian, Singaporean and Vietnamese will gather to pitch for funding of up to $20,000 each to launch or scale up their social enterprises.
