ASEAN Impact Challenge is a regional challenge designed for impact-driven social innovators and entrepreneurs within the ASEAN region. Guided by the topic ‘Sustainable Communities, Resilient Nations’, changemakers will be challenged to find ambitious solutions and create innovations to pressing community, social and environmental issues within the region. Two innovations from each ASEAN country with a proven model and the potential to scale will be given the opportunity to pitch their revolutionary initiatives to a group of entrepreneurs, investors and policy makers during the 1ASEAN Entrepreneurship Summit held in Kuala Lumpur in November. This challenge is supported by the Ministry of Finance, Malaysia and is an initiative under Malaysia’s National Blue Ocean Strategy.
