The Young Social Entrepreneurs (YSE) Regional seeks to inspire, equip and enable young changemakers to scale up or amplify the impact of their social enterprise. Held over two days in an Asian city, selected teams from the workshop will be invited to join the annual eight-month YSE Global that takes place in Singapore.
The YSE Regional 2021 will take place in Hanoi, Vietnam in partnership with the Vietnam National University –International School (VNU–IS).
Held virtually this year, invited applicants will take part in workshops and business clinics to learn from and interact with leading social entrepreneurs and business professionals from Singapore and Vietnam. Participants will also get to expand their networks for collaboration and partnerships to develop their social enterprise ideas.
Upon completing the YSE Regional, selected participants will receive direct and fully sponsored entry into the YSE Global 2022, a flagship 8-month programme with opportunities to secure mentorship and funding.
Unlock your digital solutions for social good! If you have an idea on the following, we want to hear from you:
- Digital Inclusion: How does your social enterprise idea ensure individuals and communities have access to the benefits of digital technologies?
- Digital Literacy: How does your social enterprise idea empower individuals and communities to use digital technologies with skill and confidence?
- Technology as a Tool: How does your social enterprise use technology as a tool to solve social problems?
To participant in the YSE Regional, you must:
• be 18 to 35 years old;
• be based in Vietnam;
• have a social enterprise idea that harnesses digital solutions for social good
Individuals can apply for the programme, but we highly encourage you to form a team. Having more than one member for your social enterprise allows you to maximise the benefits of teamwork and support as the work grows.
If applying as a team for one social enterprise idea, up to three members per team is allowed in the application. This is to ensure we have enough slots in the programme for other applicants.
