Innovation Programme 2018

800 Applicants - 24 Youth - 8 Countries - 1 Mission


In our inaugural YSI SEA Innnovation Programme, we created 6 start-ups, all of which had youth from at least 3 Southeast Asian countries. Their conviction towards pushing their concepts forward is a clear sign that youthful energy and diversity are key drivers of sustainable development innovation. We’re excited to have youth on board to scale our collective impact together over the years.

If you are looking to fund innovative solutions or want to hear more about any of our teams, do get in touch with us!
