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 training and engagement in solving real business problems;
    • To strengthen the Competitiveness of Vietnamese businesses in local and international markets; 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.

What is Ychallenge?

Ychallenge is the flagship project of Yplatform, a premier international case competition successfully organized in 2011 and 2012, in Singapore and Vietnam. We worked with the Case Writing Initiative of Singapore Management University (SMU) and top management of leading Vietnamese corporations (such as Vinamilk, VNG Corporation, PNJ, Becamex, Tropdicorp) to develop case studies on their real business challenges.

Participants challenged themselves in solving business issues from established Vietnamese companies, understanding more about company’s operations through the field trips, presenting their findings to company’s top management, and exchanging ideas with business managers, experts, judges and international friends. The case studies were later published to an international academic audience and used for teaching at top business schools.


We hereby invite you to join in this journey to make the dreams happen!

What it’s like working in the Y-Team?

In the spirit of “Yplatform 2.0: Dream. Do. Discover.”, the experience working in the Y-Team will be genuinely different.

As long as you have the necessary capabilities, commitment, and conviction, you will be given significant responsibilities, supports, and empowerment in coordinating and organizing the project.

Regardless of your roles in the organization, all individuals at all levels are expected to deliver an IMPACT. At Yplatform, you can expect to learn, to share, to dream, to create impacts together, to improvise along the way as we move forward, and to discover more about the world as well as your own potentials. There will be no boundaries and no bossy commands, only the belief in your abilities and your passion. Below are what we value:

    • Impact & Quality: At Yplatform, the most important focus is on delivering impact. Whatever we do, it must leave some impacts. Join us if this is also what you believe in!
    • Learning & Development:We believe in your potentials to learn and develop. Our past and current members learnt about many things including developing case studies, dealing with business partners, planning and organizing large-scale events, building communities, etc. and there are still a lot more to learn.
    • Diversity & Synergy: Y-members come from all walks of life with different backgrounds, interests, ages, and locations. There is no common definition of them except that they all share a belief in Yplatform’s vision. We complement each other and create synergy from our differences.
    • Globalization & Interconnectivity: Our team members are located in Singapore, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, and soon in other countries around the world. We connect with stakeholders across the academia, business and third sector in different countries, in order to bring global insights that would translate into local impacts in Vietnam. The world is global and interconnected – this is what we believe!
    • Vision & Sustainability: We have a vision, and we are in this for the long-term. Our vision, as mentioned above, 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”. Our members consist of both talented students and young professionals, and we believe in the spirit of “Pay It Forward”. Join us if you would love to be in this for the long-term as well!
