“You have a mind and other people. Start with those and change the world.”
100 amazing young fellows have been selected for the Paragon fellowship 2009 (formerly know as Asia Pacific Future 100). The paragon fellowship is an regional initiative of 50 organizations in Asia Pacific to inspire more young people to become entrepreneurs.
Out of 520 applications the FYSE (The Foundation for Youth Social Entrepreneurship) have selected 100 fellows from 10 different Asian countries, incl. fellows from China, Pakistan, Nepal and Indonesia. More than 60% of the fellows are social entrepreneurs, especially in the area of education.
FYSE have already started to work with the fellows in working groups (on issues like education, fair trade, IT etc), haved launched the mentorship last week and are now in full speed to organizing the Change Catalyst conference held in July 2010. The power of youth never fails to inspire and amaze all generations.
