About Us

YSI SEA empowers Southeast Asian youth to solve the region's sustainability issues through a measurable impact. Our fully funded 5-month Innovation Program, brings Southeast Asian youths together, nurtures their ideas for solving sustainability issues in the region, and gives them a platform to establish their own start-ups by providing the resources and guidance.

We create strong regional teams and stronger startups targeting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). By equipping youth with innovation frameworks and resources, we enable youth to solve local/regional problems - ultimately enhancing the quality of life for citizens across the region. We strive for decentralized innovation and effective multi-sector partnerships.

Products & Services

We provide multiple services to achieve our stated impacts.

1. Innovation Program
Our fully funded 4-Month Incubator Program guides the youth through problem identification of an SDG to producing a minimum viable product that can be prototyped. The first 3 months of the program will be conducted online with facilitators and mentors to facilitate the process. For the last 10 days of the Program, teams gather in Singapore to finalize their products, business models and pitch their products and ideas to investors, Venture Capitalists and other companies during the Singapore Sustainability Conference. YSI SEA aims to provide as much support and resources as possible to ensure that our startups succeed even post-program.

2. Workshops
YSI SEA provides workshops to Singaporean youth and established companies. These workshops will cover a wide range of issues ranging from models to blend entrepreneurship with sustainability to performing impact assessment using the SDG framework. We give speeches during events and conferences to broaden the attendees’ perspective on sustainability and youth entrepreneurship. We have spoken at Global Youth Summit 2018 and were in the closing panel for GCNS Youth Forum 2018.
