social enterprises in Singapore and beyond.
Since 2010, YSE Global has nurtured a network of youth with innovative business ideas
focused on social good. Together with established social entrepreneurs,
business consultants and investors, we harness the power of ideas,
know-how and resources to effect positive change for a better world.
