Applications are open for the Young Social Entrepreneurs Programme 2019 in Singapore.The Young Social Entrepreneurs Programme (YSE) aims to inspire, equip and enable the youth of different nationalities to embark on social enterprises (SEs) in Singapore and beyond. If one has a social enterprise idea, YSE wants to help them in making it happen. Participants will learn from leading social entrepreneurs, business professionals and other youth who are keen on social innovation, while expanding their networks for potential collaborations for good.
Admitted participants will attend a 4-day YSE Workshop held in March 2019 in Singapore, and pitch for a chance to be shortlisted into the YSE programme, which includes a mentorship scheme; overseas study visit and an opportunity to pitch for funding.
Throughout the first three days, the participants will participate in dialogues and business clinics to learn from the experience of different social entrepreneurs and gain feedback from professionals and practitioners on their business plans, so that they can refine their ideas and improve on their business presentations. On the last day of the workshop, the young entrepreneurs will present their business idea/proposal to a panel of judges. The presentation will determine the top 16 teams that will be shortlisted to progress to the next components of the YSE journey that is spread across the next eight months – an overseas study visit, mentor-ship scheme and the final pitch
(Pitching for Change session).
