Minister for Foreign Affairs, The Hon Julie Bishop MP, has announced the selection of 15 social entrepreneurs from across our region for the Australia-ASEAN Emerging Leaders Program (A2ELP), to be held in Melbourne and Sydney in March.
These young innovators are founders of enterprises that address poverty, health, education, technology and environmental degradation.
This inaugural cohort will participate in an intensive eight day incubator. Working with Asialink, participants will learn new techniques and identify opportunities to scale up, increasing their enterprises’ impact. They will be introduced to leading Australian social ventures and industry experts, which will foster connections across our region.
