Mr. UV Wong, Director of MoneyTree and Organizing Chairman of the YES Challenge stated, “The YES Challenge has evolved over the past year as we strive to make YES a platform to not only allow young aspiring Entrepreneurs to acquire the skills, knowledge and experience in Entrepreneurship, but also as a platform for commercialization of ideas. In fact, we are proud to announce that we recently commercialized and launched MOB, Mainstream Online Buzz, a Social Media Marketing Agency that was the result of the YES Challenge. The August 6th Party will be a celebration of the success of the YES 2 teams, as we look forward to helping more Young Aspiring Entrepreneurs commercialize their ideas and turn their dreams into reality.”

The YES challenge is a business challenge organized by MoneyTree to help Young, Vibrant Entrepreneur Aspirants launch their business ideas into the market and ultimately turn those ideas into profitable ventures. The challenge not only allows young Entrepreneurs / aspiring Entrepreneurs to learn skills that would sharpen their Entrepreneurial mindsets, but to also provide them with the opportunity to experience the practical applications of the Entrepreneurial skills they acquired through the MoneyTree Entrepreneur Fast Track program. Ultimately, YES teams who have proven their worth would be channelled to government pre-seed grants for full commercialization of their ideas.
