Redefine the post-COVID world by aligning your business with impact
‘Impact’ is a term that has been appearing more and more often in the Asian startup scene. It’s no wonder. The world we live in is being redefined by megatrends that include globalization, technology breakthroughs, urbanization, demographic shifts (ageing), environmental change, and pandemics like COVID-19. That’s why great ideas driven by the need to solve social, economic, or environmental issues have the potential for great IMPACT for local and global communities.
Fast market growth data predicts great business opportunities in Asia: by 2030, the region is expected to contribute roughly 60% of global growth, and will also be responsible for 90% of the 2.4 billion new middle class members entering the global economy. Currently, capital invested in early-stage impact startups only takes 3.6% of all VC financing in ASEAN, which means that there’s a huge market gap to fill to support profit business models looking to do good.
That’s where our story begins.
