The Rotary Youth Social Entrepreneurship Challenge 2009 (RYSEC) is looking for new youth-driven ideas on socially responsible businesses! Organized by the Rotary Club of Singapore, SYINC, Volans and a group of passionate individuals (which includes an experienced team of entrepreneurs and non-profit founders), RYSEC hopes to inspire social entrepreneurs and are looking for social enterprises that are profitable, bring fundamental value and which will create sustainable change.

RYSEC promises to provide all participants will undergo extensive training and mentorship programmes by the best and most experienced people they can find in Singapore, and winners of the competition will join in an all-expense paid internship at an international non-profit organization as well as be awarded a cash prize.  So if you are between 15 to 30 years old, based in Singapore, meet the eligibility criteria and have a great idea for a social enterprise, do check RYSEC out.
