My experience at YLES and the event itself holds a really special place in my heart. It taught me the importance of being decisive in certain situations. Moreover, pitching and presenting in front of professional industry judges and students from all over Pakistan made me more confident and self-aware. However, what I really love the most about the event is how you get to interact with so many people from different cultures and backgrounds. Participating in such a prestigious competition changed my life and I would love to be a part of it again in the future..

YLES Runner's Up
Even if I were to give my account of YLES in a lot of detail, my words would fail to capture the complete beauty of its experience. Throughout the course of the event, I got to interact with people from all over the country with different social/cultural backgrounds who captured my fascination with the uniqueness of their ideas. The event groomed me a lot as it taught me some basic yet important skills, like operating in unfamiliar environments and working in a team, these skills that have helped me a lot in different aspects of my life, for which, I am extremely grateful.

YLES'19 Delegate
The comprehensive business rounds spanning a period of five days pushed my abilities to the limits and tested my knowledge and adaptability to difficult situations. As a winner of YLES’19 my message to the participating teams is that thoroughly read the materials provided by YLES, brainstorm all the possible solutions supported by realistic instances and then present it to the judges in a well-structured manner. Therefore, I highly encourage all the nascent entrepreneurs out there to become part of YLES and make the best out of it.

YLES'19 Winners
YLES is the most demanding and challenging Entrepreneurship competition I have ever participated in. Many people think that entrepreneur competitions are only about public speaking; however, it is clear those people have never done a marketing round and had to learn filming and editing videos within a week of receiving your module instructions. Beyond anything, YLES forced me out of my comfort zone, having to act in ads, help out with video editing and taking my time management and organizational skills to the limit.
