  Young Social Entrepreneurs Competition 2008 – Asia Round (Asia - South and East only)


Youth Social Enterprise Initiative (YSEI) is glad to announce a call for proposals to the 2008 YSEI Fellowship Programme.

Youth Social Enterprise Initiative (YSEI) is a high-engagement social venture program for emerging young social entrepreneurs in developing countries. Through its Fellowship Programme, YSEI provides young social entrepreneurs with support in four key areas:

Financing: Up to USD15,000
Knowledge: Essential development knowledge & tools on social entrepreneurship
Mentorship: Technical consulting through mentorship
Networks: Access to diverse networks

The Fellowship Programme consists in a competitive selection process to provide support to young social entrepreneurs.

20 workshop finalists would be identified to attend the upcoming YSEI Capacity Building workshop scheduled for May 2008. The deadline for submission is the 28th of Mar 2008.

The purpose of the Capacity Building workshop is to both identify the batch of YSEI Fellows 2008 and provide capacity building support to all the finalists participating. This would entail refining the workshop finalists business plans, conducting further due diligence and nurturing a network of young social entrepreneurs and mentors.

YSEI aims to invest in young visionaries who have big ideas and who need crucial startup support to turn their ideas into action. The following are characteristics of ventures we aim to invest in:

  • Ventures are led by youth from developing countries aged between 20 to 35 years
  • Innovative social ventures with blended values (creation economic, social and/or environmental value components)
  • Information & communication technologies (ICTs) are recognized as an integral part of the venture/ solution-provided
  • Ventures that are specifically designed to solve social or environmental problems
  • Ventures that have at least 6 months implementation

This round would only cover the Asia-region (Asia - South and East) as YSEI is in the midst of exploring replication of the program with other partners in the other regions. The replication of the program is expected to happen in the near future.

To apply, please visit the following link ( and proceed to register and complete your online application.
Although we encourage you to complete the application online, if you encounter problems, please download the application form (YSEI application form 2008.doc) and submit it to

The deadline for submissions is 28th Mar 2008.

The workshop finalists results are expected to be announced by the 10th April 2008.

The applications will be judged based on the YSEI Program criteria.


The winners derived from the GKP Global Young Social Entrepreneur Competition, Nov 2007, are automatically eligible for this round and do NOT need to apply again.
