Spotlight on Tiffany Yau / by Haley Smith

Meet Tiffany Yau - Founder & CEO of Fulphil and Founder & Executive Director of Hult Prize Ivy

Tell us about Fulphil.

Fulphil the driving force of social entrepreneurship in Philadelphia, helping students create ventures that have a positive impact on the city. We empower youth entrepreneurs and college students to solve their city’s most pressing social issues. Many college students leave Philly instead of staying, so having more social economic opportunities is important. We bring together the power of multiple universities to better the world around us. Some of the brightest minds and most motivated people for social change are college students with resources from amazing institutions.



Who has inspired you most on your entrepreneurial journey?

My biggest inspiration in my entrepreneurship journey can’t be traced to a single person but rather in the young people of our generation as a whole. Through my endeavors with Fulphil and Hult Prize Ivy, I encounter motivated young people who want to make an impact almost every day. Witnessing their motivation, tenacity, and genuineness to want to make a difference—and having the fortunate opportunity of being part of that journey—is really what inspires me most.



What do you want to be remembered for?

 I hope to be remembered as the person who was able to make a difference in someone’s life. I’m a firm believer in the power of one—once you inspire one person, you did your job, because that one person will go on to inspire others around them and continue to make an impact.
