Youth Business Singapore (YBS) is a programme under The Prince’s Youth Business International (YBI), a global network in 38 countries that has successfully helped over 100,000 new businesses in 13 years. YBS is currently part of Heartware Network, a youth charitable organisation which focuses on developing youths, across all societal strata, into young community champions. With that in mind, youth entrepreneurship forms the third of our key trusts – Youth Development, Youth Leadership and Youth Entrepreneurship. YBS seeks to be the leading charity in cultivating a culture of entrepreneurship in Singapore and helping youths between 18 and 35 years old with business loans and mentoring.

In doing so, we aim to inspire and empower young entrepreneurs to make their great business ideas happen! Beyond educational outreach and training in Singapore, YBS has strategic partnerships with Saudi Arabia, China and India to establish a regional learning hub for sharing of ideas.
