We are delighted to announce the addition of two new member organisations to our Global Network, furthering our mission to empower young entrepreneurs around the world. The Work Together Foundation (South Korea) and Startup Vietnam Foundation have teamed up with us to contribute to the global ecosystem of youth entrepreneurship.
The Work Together Foundation (WTF) has been a social led foundation since 2003, focused on reducing social inequality and creating better opportunities for everyone. With a primary goal of overcoming unemployment, WTF has actively engaged with various segments of society, including youth, women, and the middle-aged. Sejoong Lee, Chairman of The Work Together Foundation says:
‘It’s really exciting to be joining a network of like-minded organisations. The Work Together Foundation has been focused on creating decent jobs through strengthening the social enterprise ecosystem with a mission to reduce social polarization and unemployment in South Korea and worldwide. To be able to connect and collaborate with other members driving towards the same goal will help us improve and grow. We’re looking forward to getting to know the network, learning from our esteemed peers and helping others with our successes and expertise too.’
The Startup Vietnam Foundation (SVF), established in 2014, is a non-profit organisation with a mission to uplift Vietnam through innovation and entrepreneurship. Their vision is to see more high-quality, technology-driven local brands thrive in the global market. Over the past decade, SVF has successfully provided a wide range of products and services to nurture entrepreneurship, strengthen capacities, facilitate dialogues, forge partnerships, and accelerate innovation for local and international organisations. Mandy Nguyen - Operation Director at Startup Vietnam Foundation says:
‘Startup Vietnam Foundation (SVF) has a strong mission of promoting sustainable development using innovation and entrepreneurship. We have been at the forefront of generating transformative impacts for the local young entrepreneurs, and we know that the best ideas come through collaboration and connections. We’re delighted to join Youth Business International as it allows us to accelerate the innovation ecosystem and entrepreneurship support programs globally through learning and sharing with the other members. This means more positive impact for more young entrepreneurs.’
We are thrilled to welcome these two exceptional organisations to our Global Network. With their unique expertise and their commitment to empowering young entrepreneurs, we are confident that together we will make a significant impact on youth entrepreneurship worldwide.
