Here at Young Upstarts (@youngupstarts) we like to write about things that change the world in little ways.
That’s why we focus on small business stories, entrepreneurship, intrapreneurship, social causes as well as new ideas that help make our world a better place. We especially love to highlight young people and their small businesses, and celebrate their vision and role in changing the world with their ideas, products and services.
Young Upstarts is part of Singapore-based Upstart Publishing.
