BSD Education and Young Founders School's Partnership Announcement

By: BSD Education
SHEUNG WAN, Hong Kong - May 27, 2020 - PRLog -- BSD (Build Something Different) Education, the educational technology and curriculum organization focused on designing, developing and delivering programs of learning for digital skills and Young Founders School (YFS), a non-profit organization with a mission to change the way entrepreneurial education is taught announced their partnership to further improve the teaching and accessibility of entrepreneurship and technology education to thousands of students across Asia.

BSD's expertise in delivering virtual learning environments to thousands of students in over 12 countries will allow YFS to grow its reach by enabling it to offer its existing programs virtually. In addition, the synergy will enable an enhanced offering of digital skills alongside entrepreneurship.

YFS started 5 years ago and have put close to 2,500 students through their programs in 4 countries: Hong Kong, China, Bangladesh & Singapore. However, the impact of the recent health pandemic has hit offline education particularly hard and YFS' core offering of connecting students and mentors to create life-changing experiences is challenged. Though unfortunate, it paved the way for exciting and new opportunities to explore.  Under BSD's guidance, YFS will be launching new online products over the next 6 months to tackle the skills gap in entrepreneurship and digital skills for highschool students and to provide virtual experiences that will continue to transform lives.

"The innovation and creativity in entrepreneurship, united with the ever-growing frontier of digital skills that are in high demand are critical partners in the future learning experiences for students globally. We are delighted to be able to enrich our offerings in entrepreneurship through this partnership with YFS," said Chris Geary, BSD Education CEO.

"Today we are excited to announce our partnership with BSD, a long-time partner, and friend of YFS. BSD's mission to bring digital skills to classrooms everywhere, aligns very closely with YFS. I want to thank our team for all the hard-work they've put in to get us to this stage. To Chris and the BSD team thank you for ongoing support on the road ahead, we are truly grateful," said Billy Naveed, YSF CEO.
