OUR STORY

How It All Began

28 October 2020
We started our journey as Team SilverWellness at Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD)’s Design Odyssey’s DRIVE annual 3-day Bootcamp.
After several consultations between us and our mentor, Lee Siew Yian, we came up with SAGE (Sharing And Gaining Experiences), to provide a platform for the easy and accessible sharing of knowledge.
SAGE officially launched its MVP, a Telegram Bot, with a group of 100 Sages and Apprentices for 1:1 sharing.
Since then, SAGE has obtained a spot in the Top 10 teams for the Impact through Inspiration E-Ideathon 2021 and was 1 of 2 Singaporean teams to be admitted into YMCA’s regional RaonAtti programme.
As of December 2021,
We have more than 350 Sages and Apprentices genuinely interested in learning from, and sharing with, one another!
