YSI SEA - Young Sustainable Impact Southeast Asia

YSI SEA is a Social Enterprise which aim to empower youth who are passionate about solving sustainability issues through equipping them with skills, frameworks and guidance to make a tangible, sustainable impact. Among others, we have recently completed our first successful regional 4-month Innovation Programme which provided a structured framework, curated course modules and mentors to guide the 24 selected youth participants (out of 800 applicants) from problem identification to developing a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) for market validation. Our 6 start-up teams are actively tackling SDGs of their interest in their local communities across Southeast Asia.

 

Our growing online follower base of more than 2,000 youth from all over Southeast Asia and over 13,000 youth worldwide shows the interest youth have in dealing with sustainability issues of this era.

 

Beyond youth, we aim to build partnerships with important players in the sustainability ecosystem in order to ensure that the impact is realized to a greater potential. YSI SEA's inaugural conference attracted 55 unique groups of angel and corporate investors, venture capitalists, accelerators and rotary members at the CDL Singapore Sustainability Academy on 29 July 2018. We have also received widespread support from organizations such as the Prime Minister's Office Singapore, Singapore Ministry of National Development, Temasek Foundation Ecosperity, World Vision and National Youth Council.

 

We aim to continue involving multiple stakeholders in this ecosystem of empowering youth to create a sustainable impact.
