It starts with leadership
The business challenges of today far exceed the ones faced by previous generations. That is why the world needs young leaders who can imagine and champion more sustainable practices. A new cohort capable of doing business in ways that ultimately benefit people and society at large.
The Business Roundtable (BRT) redefined the purpose of a corporation beyond its
accountability to shareholders, but to all stakeholders. This includes customers,
employees, vendors, partners, investors - but also the community in which we live.
Inspired by this vision, SBF created the Young Business Leaders Network (YBLN) to harness the potential of Singapore’s young entrepreneurs, ‘next-gen’ business owners and corporate leaders.
How YBLN empowers a socially sustainable future
People are stepping into leadership roles at a much younger age, the skills required have multiplied exponentially and the impact of their decisions have far-reaching consequences.
To overcome the challenges of being a leader today, YBLN has built a vibrant, diverse and inclusive community that offers knowledge, guidance and exposure.
Here you can meet peers, learn from mentors, share experiences, and explore partnerships that — together — can create positive social impact in the world today and for the generations to come.
Our ethos is one of inclusivity and collaboration, and we actively champion business practices that are in pursuit of innovation, community wellbeing, environmental stewardship, and good governance, in addition to economic success.
If you also believe there is more to business than being financially successful and want to connect with like-minded innovative leaders who are making a difference, explore the benefits of joining the YBLN.
What we do, matters for the community and the planet
We believe we can build success and sustainable organisation, and leadership plays a big role in this, recognising that purpose must be realised through action.
YBLN not only leverages SBF’s 27,000-member network. It’s an active community itself that helps members to meet, share and partner through a combination of fireside chats, workshops, mentorship programmes and strategic projects to positively impact people, society and the world through business.
Are you one of such courageous, committed and spirited new-gen leaders? Find out more about all-year-round activities of YBLN and the initiatives that are shaping our business community.
YBLN is also Singapore’s official representative to the ASEAN Young Entrepreneurs Council and Association, connecting our home-grown leaders with the rest of the world.
