IRMA Participants Attend YSE Workshop in Bengaluru

Participants of the 39th batch of IRMA's flagship PGDRM programme participated in the Young Social Entrepreneurs (YSE) Overseas workshop in Bengaluru on 2nd and 3rd May. The workshop, organized by the Singapore International Foundation (SIF) was conducted with 35 social entrepreneurs from across India.

Palak Agarwal, Pranay Goel, Shubham Deshmukh and Tanya Sinha participated with the idea of the social enterprise Vaasta, that aims to create greater efficiency in the allocation and utilisation of funds across social projects and address the problem of information asymmetry and moral hazard in the market, whereas Supratim Nandi and Archana Kamath presented their social enterprise Technothlon, through which they want to build an ecosystem where the visually-impaired can share their experiences to inspire each other.

The workshop equipped the participants with entrepreneurial know-how as well as skills in leadership, marketing, business acumen, measuring social impact and pitching, to further scale-up their social enterprises.

Besides connecting and learning from speakers and mentors from diverse sectors in the India and Singapore social entrepreneurship ecosystems, the participants joined the global YSE network of over 1000 changemakers from 30 nationalities.

The Young Social Entrepreneurs (YSE) programme inspires, equips and enables youth of different nationalities to start or scale up their social enterprises.
