  • About NYEA 2023

    the achievements of budding entrepreneurs on a national level. The awards are given to youths­ who have displayed entrepreneurial qualities and recognises their contributions to the Singapore startup ecosystem.


    Through this award, ACE.SG hopes to inspire more youth to contribute to the local startup and innovation ecosystem.

    2023 Theme:

    Innovation for a Better World


    In Singapore, our startups and innovators are at the forefront with cutting edge innovation, disruptive
    technology, and contemporary solutions. They improve lives with solutions that
    drive good change in our communities, societies, and the world.​

    This year, the focus for NYEA turns to the youths who are working in the sustainability and social impact space. We
