The Y.I.L Fellowship is a four-month annual leadership immersion programme in innovation management designed to empower young professionals to attain their ultimate career dreams and inspire innovation in their spheres. Its chief aim is to unleash human potential and scale up excellence.

The Y.I.L Fellowship is structured to operate in two stages. First is the fellowship: a challenging but rewarding four-month programme focused on training in leadership and innovation management.
