Asia Social Innovation Award (ASIA) is a flagship social startup competition inspiring collective action in tackling urban challenges in the Asia-Pacific region, launched by Social Ventures Hong Kong (SVhk) in 2008.
17 finalists, including Top 11 early-growth stage startups from across Asia, and top 7 idea-stage innovations from Hong Kong, are selected as ASIA 2020 Changemakers. This year, the competition takes on a brand new format as an Online Pitch Contest for finalists to compete for 4 awards and the chance to showcase their innovations in Hong Kong.
Break Grounds, Build Change, Birth Hope. The 2020 theme “New Urban” invites changemakers from across Asia to redefine urban thinking, lifestyles and ecosystems through purpose-driven, people-centric innovations.
Partnering with JUMPSTARTER, an initiative curated by the Alibaba Entrepreneur Fund, our goal is to connect the social entrepreneurship and startup ecosystems, including corporates, investors, policy makers and the public to amplify positive impact to the society.
