What is Yplatform?

The vision of Yplatform is to create the connecting platform among global talented youth and businesses/organizations in the joint effort to strengthen Vietnam's global competitiveness in different aspects.

Since 2010, Yplatform has been building a network of professionals and talented students aiming to achieve 3 main purposes:

    • To develop and empower the Youth through formal and practical training as well as engagement in solving real business problems;
    • To strengthen the Competitiveness of Vietnamese businesses in local and international markets through consulting supports and business solutions tailored to Vietnamese business conditions; and
    • To generate Insights and knowledge about Vietnamese businesses through facilitating the establishment of industry knowledge and business case resources tailored to Vietnamese business conditions.


Recognizing that:

    • For the youth: Talented youth, both local and overseas, Vietnamese and international, possess the passion to put their skills and knowledge into real practice to create impacts;
    • For Vietnamese businesses: Many companies have ambitions to grow and venture into new waters, but do not possess the necessary capacity and insights to capture the possibilities, and are generally passive in tapping into international talents; and
    • For the international academic community: Vietnamese businesses still remain a mystery, and there is insufficient information about Vietnamese business conditions.


These are the gaps that Yplatform envisioned to fulfill and lay the first brick of a model that could possibly contribute something tangible to the development of Vietnam. We hope to create a conducive platform where like-minded individuals and stakeholders (regardless of locations, nationalities, or backgrounds) can network, share, and work together in the joint effort to strengthen Vietnam's global competitiveness.


Who are we?

Our organizing team consists of high-caliber students and young professionals who wish to contribute their talents and international experience to the sustainable development of Vietnam. Our organizers are studying at/have graduated from top universities worldwide and/or have working experience in top multi-national companies in Vietnam and overseas. We have team members located in Hanoi (Vietnam), HCMC (Vietnam), Singapore, and soon in other countries such as the United States, Europe, etc.

We have received the supports from our Board of Advisors, together with the Network of Academicians and Network of Business Leaders, in addition to the official partnerships with NUS Business School (National University of Singapore), SMU Case Writing Initiative (Singapore Management University), Institute of Potential Leaders (IPL), and various leading corporations in Vietnam.

Our past programmes such as Ysummit 2010 (a conference where Vietnamese youth in Singapore gathered to share passions and be inspired by the forerunners from diverse backgrounds in the discussion about various opportunities to contribute to Vietnam’s development), Ychallenge 2011 and 2012 (a youth-led international business case competition on Vietnam’s leading businesses, with a purpose to create a model platform fostering the exchange of ideas and experience between businesses in Vietnam and young talents with international insights), etc. have attracted more than 2,000 participants of different nationalities who are studying at/have graduated from more than 60 universities in Singapore, Vietnam, and other countries (see the full list of our programmes). Our conferences & talks have created various networking opportunities for the participants and partners. Concurrently, we have also produced Case Studies about Vietnamese companies.

We have been covered by a number of leading newspapers in Vietnam, and have received positive feedbacks from our partner companies as well as other experts.

In 2013, we launched Yplatform Solutions which is both a consulting program for SMEs in Vietnam as well as a training program for Vietnamese students to become Student Consultants (see examples about the training modules as well as our recruitment).
