  • Building a better world through business

    “This world demands the qualities of youth; not a time of life but a state of mind, a temper of the will, a quality of the imagination, a predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the life of ease.”

    Our mission is to live in a world where every entrepreneur is driven by a purpose greater than profit, every business a force for good and everyone has the opportunity to contribute towards the uplifting of society, so that together we can build a better world through business.

    POY (Power of Youth) was founded in 2011 in recognition that the world needs action orientated purpose driven role models for the next generation and that business provides an exceptional platform to help humanity reach its potential.

    With this in mind, the Metta Network was built. The Metta Network is founded on one simple idea: that it is time for the business world to fulfil its potential for uplifting societies across the world. We call this “building a better world through business”, and the drive is being led by entrepreneurs with a purpose beyond profit. These entrepreneurs run game-changing businesses, which:

    • Show real care for the people they employ;
    • Work in harmony with local communities;
    • Supply uplifting and innovative products and services to the market; and
    • Take active measures to minimise harm done to the environment.

    People and businesses like this are dotted all over the world – the Metta Network is a place for them to come together for reflection, inspiration, connection and acceleration. Power of Youth is entering its third year of running game changing programmes in Scotland that bring this all to life.

    KEY FACTS

    In the last 3 years we have run over 21 events and programmes over 3 continents with participants from 24 countries. Our events and programmes are where entrepreneurs and supporters come together to reflect on their purpose, get inspired, connect to one another and accelerate their work.

    In the last 12 months we have leveraged over half a million dollars of pro-bono support into 16 businesses to help them scale. The Metta Network consists of an array of extraordinary people carving their own path to build meaningful businesses, to create new opportunities for growth and – ultimately – value for societies everywhere.

    • 7 Global Summits in China, South Africa, Scotland, Pakistan, Greece and India
    • 247 Participating Entrepreneurs
    • 16 Enterprises Received $500,000+ of Pro-Bono Growth Support
    • 412 People Attended Public Events
    • 1m+ Thousand Video Loads
    • 27 Regional Events and Programmes
    • 24 Countries Represented

    LEGACY PROGRAMME BOOSTING SCOTLAND'S ENTREPRENEURIAL AMBITION

    The aim of the Legacy Programme was to provide a platform for 200 aspirational entrepreneurs to learn from more advanced entrepreneurs in a one day event. And to support 30 of Scotland’s top young entrepreneurs in a 12 month, four stage peer-mentoring programme with three primary elements:

    Ecosystem Development: A series of four residentials led and financed by entrepreneurs focused on developing the Scottish enterprise ecosystem;
    Pay-it-Forward: Structured mentoring to embed a culture of values based business in Scotland’s business elite and next generation entrepreneurs;
    Scotland’s Future: Collaboration across agencies and support organisations to identify and nurture young business leaders and accelerate their business success.

    Over the 12 month period POY hit some significant milestones in addition to creating a new manual for entrepreneurial upstarts – POY Go

    POY Go is an online platform and manual that shares the insights, resources and knowledge from the top young game-changing entrepreneurs from around the world. It is a vehicle for enterprise education that has a vision for building a better world captured within it.

    “I can see the Power of Youth gaining the attention of the whole world, they have captured the spirit of a generation.” Rao Jin co-founder of Ren Ren (China’s Facebook) CEO and founder of April Media

    “POY is like a meditation, it brings clarity, it brings perspective and massive inspiration (personal and business). It connects values that we have with what we do and helps prioritise projects we want to be involved, people we want to work with. Its a peer to peer sharing experience of contacts, ideas and is a massive boost. But the main point with POY is that its personal, its deep and meaningful, we really care about each other.” Linas Ceikus POY Fellow | Vantage Program Alum | CEO - Activity Gifts
