Do you have an existing social venture?
Or simply agreat idea to improve lives,
impact communities and drive social change?
Who can participate?
There is no limit on age, nationality or number of members in a team. You are welcome to participate whether you just have an idea, or have already started a venture, as long as it has a social impact in Asia.
Participating or proposed ventures should be independent entities, meaning that they should not be a subsidiary of an existing corporation or have legal ties to a government body.
Existing non-profits can participate, however they should propose a new venturing idea or a new plan to transform their existing non-profit operation into a financially more sustainable business.
Proposed ventures should demonstrate positive, sustainable and scalable social impact in Asia (though not exclusively).
Submissions should be the original work of the team – teams are expected to demonstrate the originality of their ideas whenever possible, or evidence of innovation.
Teams that qualify in the top 12 are required to send at least one core member to the semifinals and finals in Singapore. Financial assistance will be provided for one representative per team for teams residing outside of Singapore.
The organizers of the Challenge reserve to right to disqualify any teams that are found to have violated the spirit of the competition guidelines.
