The programme will bring Singaporean, Cambodian and regional professionals together to inspire, equip, and enable youth to start their social enterprises both locally and regionally.

The target programme participants are young changemakers from the ages of 18 to 35 years old, studying in Institutes of Higher Learning in Cambodia, with the passion to start social enterprises.
