The Asia Social Innovation Asia (ASIA), launched in 2008, is the first region-wide Social Start-up Competition to promote the culture of social innovation and encourage the exchange of ideas among Asian cities in addressing urban social challenges.

Since its inception, ASIA has engaged with partners and participants from over 20 Asian cities. The competition is open to individuals with new ideas and early stage entrepreneurs. Finalists from Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam and Other Asian Countries will have the opportunity to join our Social Start-up Weekend in Hong Kong to compete for cash prizes up to HKD100,000.

To celebrate our 10th year anniversary, this year’s theme will be ‘Imagining the next 10 years of Social Innovation’ with a focus on 10 Impact Areas to inspire a forward looking approach to tackling social issues.
