about us

Established in 2016, EDGE is the youth wing of ACE. After a hiatus of 1.5 years, EDGE is back, bigger and better. EDGE is a community that aims to support, develop, and empower youth entrepreneurs in Singapore. 

 

Mission

To build a supportive community for youth entrepreneurs in Singapore

Vision

Demystifying entrepreneurship and making it real

Our Goals

Empower

Members will be exposed to entrepreneurs from various industries. Identify their area of interests and find out what they need to equip themselves with.

Develop

After identifying the needs of each member, they will be taught the necessary skill sets required. Develop their character, soft skills and hard skills.

Groom

Interested members who are working on an idea will seek professional advice and guidance from industry experts via mentorships or consultation sessions.

Entrepreneurs

You may be working on a fundable or non-fundable venture. Ask yourself, have you make a significant difference or a positive impact in the world?

Our Mentors

EDGE does not have a formal mentoring programme. If you’re a seed stage youth founder and would like to be connected to one of our mentors, please reach out to us at [email protected] To ensure a meaningful session, you will need to identify key issues or questions before we facilitate the connection. Thank you.

We are building our pool of mentors. If you’re interested to be a mentor, please reach out to us at [email protected]
