"The most valuable part of being in Young Founders Summit was that we got to critically scrutinise our performance as we got to know our strengths and weaknesses and divide our jobs accordingly. This also helped us improve on our teamwork skills and capability to collaborate our ideas to form one big, intriguing idea."


"I have taken part in YFS two times now and I have to say that the experience was AMAZING. I have learned and gained so many unique skills that I’d never have gotten to learn from school. I have made links with talented and successful investors and with hard-working teens. It was great to see how more people my age were thinking of different ways to help the world. It was truly a great experience and I would definitely recommend it to everyone."


"We had a great mentor who treated us like adults by giving us real and honest feedback for our ideas. Despite being extremely busy, he was able to arrange weekly meetings with us via Skype and committed to helping us to the best of his extent. We were able to meet amazing contacts in the tech industry and VC / Investors industry."
