In our fully funded program, we choose the smartest minds below 28 years to create an impact startup. Focusing on the 17 SDGs - we aim to help 7 teams create new startups from scratch. We provide you with a world-class team, educational resources, mentors and network, money and access for testing, as well as a vibrant community!
Our community is made up of thousands of young people who aim to make sustainability business as usual!
"21st-century education system done right! Fun fact; I have learned the same content as my friend who is paying 50 grand in a fancy business school."
- Alex Artiach Sounssi, YSI Participant
We believe innovation and entrepreneurship can solve most of the global challenges, that youth are the driving force, and in collaboration with the experienced and established - it can be done!
