Young Digital Entrepreneurs - Empowering Social Business
YDE is an international community with one target:
Establishing social businesses
using digital technologies
in an international context.
The YDE community and their supporters operate an incremental mentoring program. The mentoring program falls into three steps: YDECamp, YDELab and YDEIncubator. The program is established among two countries. Generally, the participants of one country act as mentors, while the other participants are mentees.
YDE2016/2017 starts with the YDECamp in December 2016. YDECamp will be executed in Dortmund, Germany and Dhaka, Bangladesh at the same time. The locations in Dortmund and Dhaka are connected digital.
The goals of the YDECamp are:
- find the best ideas for social businesses challenging the poverty of street kids in Bangladesh
- work together in an international team establishing longtime relationships
- sharpen your personal skills creating ideas and pitch your idea to the point
- lots of fun
