BYST was officially launched in 1992 by HRH Prince Charles and expanded its operations to six major regions of India. Out of these six regions four of them (Delhi, Chennai, Pune and Hyderabad) run the urban programme while two regions run the rural programme (Rural Haryana and Rural Maharashtra).
 
Delhi
 

BYST started its operations in 1991 with the launch of its youth entrepreneurship development programme from Delhi. The year 1991 was a crucial one as it was the pilot phase of the programme. The programme was set up in the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) headquarters, which provided the infrastructure and managerial support to the Trust. Presently BYST is operating in Delhi from:

Rural Haryana
 
Gradually BYST started making its presence felt in the field of youth entrepreneurship development throughout the country. Soon the corporate sector started recognising the work of BYST and the need for generating employment through entrepreneurship. By the end of 1993 there was also a need to target the rural youth towards enterprise development. With this objective BYST started its operations in the villages of Rural Haryana in 1994. ESCORTS supported BYST in fulfilling its agenda of developing dynamic micro-entrepreneurs in the villages. Presently BYST is operational in 90 villages spread over 100 km. The project area is divided into 4 clusters having around 20 villages per cluster, Seekri, Tigaon, Jasana and Fathepur.

Urban Pune
 
Soon the concept of entrepreneurship development began taking roots. The business community both nationally and internationally started realising that entrepreneurship development is the key to tackle the global unemployment problem. This necessitated a partnership between non -governmental organisations and the corporate sector. In the midst of this scenario BYST was approached by DIAGEO, a multinational, to launch a youth entrepreneurship development programme in Pune (Western India) in 1994. CII, which was already a support partner to BYST in Delhi and Chennai, came forward to provide the infrastructure and managerial support. Presently BYST - Pune is operating from:

Hyderabad
 
After the success of four regional programmes BYST was well recognised as a developing country model for the development of youth entrepreneurship. Even the financial institutions endorsed such a model. Another milestone was reached when American Insurance Group (AIG), one of the leading multinational banks came forward to lend support to BYST's programme in Hyderabad. The programme similar to Delhi, Chennai and Pune was launched in 1998. CII, Hyderabad provided the infrastructure and managerial support. Presently BYST - Hyderabad is operating from:
