The rise of startups around the world hasrevealed to us that a small number of individuals with a large amount of drive can bring upon great change to our society.Big names that weall recognise today – Facebook, Google and Amazon –were once startups. Inmerely two decades, they are among the most valuable companies in the world. They have created millions of jobs and transformed millions of lives.Startups have allowed us to move away from the old top-down consumption model toa new collaborative model, where every member of the society has an equal opportunity to share opinions, contribute ideas and shape market trends. With the startup concept, aslong asyou have a great, feasible idea, you stand a chance to succeed. This helpscreate a more level playing field and eventually translate to a better income distribution.This very quality and culture driven by startups is what the WIEF Foundation treasures aswe strive our best to help shape a more inclusive business ecosystem and a more resilient global economy.With the WIEF Idealab 2015, our focus istobuild a robust network and support system for the startup community here in Southeast Asia. With the ASEAN Economic Community coming intoeffect by the end of this year, the region will be integrated into one single marketof 600 million people with a free flow of services, investments, capital andskilled labour. Hence, itis also timely that wegive special attention to the development of startups to further strengthen the growth potential of this region.Now, a comprehensive programme has been put together, relevant parties and experts have been mobilised, and investors from around the world have flown in and ready to invest.Weare all set and ready to let the startup revolution begin here in Southeast Asia.

laihock

Lai Hock
Founder and ‘Kampung Chief’
Ground-Up Initiative (G.U.I.)

Lai Hock is the Founder and ‘Kampung Chief’ of the Ground-Up Initiative (G.U.I.). He has been rallying the power of community through its weekly Balik Kampung programme to grow GUI since 2008, starting from a tiny plot of land through the grace of a local farmer at Lim Chu Kang. Quickly outgrowing that, GUI moved to Yishun in April 2009 where it has collectively raised and grown its base, the Sustainable Living Kampung, from a mere 100sqm of space to over 1500sqm. This has enabled GUI to nurture a 21st Century Kampung Culture that connects many people to GUI’s vision of a 5G society – Gracious, Green, Giving, Grounded and Grateful. GUI will soon begin constructing the Kampung campus, a low carbon footprint campus, to serve a wider audience in Singapore as well as the region.
Many values and philosophies guide this vision. The African proverb: ͞Go fast, go alone. Go far, go together͟, motivated Lai Hock to bring many kindred spirits to realise this vision together.

Before GUI, Lai Hock was 6 years a professional soldier and 11 years a highly successful regional corporate business and marketing man before leaving to backpack around the world for more than 4 years in the quest to discover something truly meaningful to do with his life.

WIEF Young Fellows
Manila, 2014
Manila, The Philippines
08.00 - 17.00
18th – 24th June 2014

WIEF Young Fellows 2014 will be in Manila this year on 18-24 June 2014. YF2014 is due to attract around 30 participants worldwide this year between the ages of 20-30. YF2014 welcomes young leaders from all walks of life, whether young CEOs, young professionals, NGO or civil society leaders, academics, creative artists, community organisers and others. As long as you have a burning idea to improve the world, this is a programme for you. This hugely popular holistic leadership development programme takes on a new level of engagement this year, focusing mainly on experiential learning and practical entrepreneurship skill sets. So regardless of the work you do, these are skills we believe that you would benefit from in your lives.

At the YF2014, these hands-on entrepreneurship skills and having to work with people from different nations and cultures will play a critical role in shaping how you view and deal with the future. Entrepreneurship skill sets, while not everyone’s cup of tea, give you an important insight into planning and structure, financial management and training your mind to understand people’s wants and aspirations. But equally important, YF2014 teaches you how to appreciate underprivileged people, to provide them with hope and aspirations just like everyone else, to preserve our planet and create innovative products and services to improve the wellbeing of society. These values are what you will take with you for a long time in the future.
