ARUSEA Incubation Program (Alliance for Resilient Urban South-East Asia). The program is created by the British Geological Survey and Bridge for Billions (in partnership with VIGMR), a sponsored program for 10 social entrepreneurs (preferably 5 in Vietnam and 5 in the Philippines) aiming for the improvement of their communities' resilience in the face of natural hazards.
The program consists of a 4-month online incubation in which participants will be provided structured training with online tools and personalized mentoring.
They will be able to validate their business model and expand their entrepreneurship knowledge, and the program is provided for free. Entrepreneurs will be working alongside a mentor, with whom they would meet on a weekly basis, and be part of a community of professionals, experts and local ecosystem actors.
They would be expected to commit 6 - 8 hours per week during the whole program, and their team of incubation managers will be following up with entrepreneurs and support them as needed along their joint journey with the mentor.
If entrepreneurs choose to join the program, they will be able to:
Increase skills by discovering a cutting-edge entrepreneurship methodology.
Choose a mentor to support based on his/her interests and skills, from anywhere since everything is online.
Be able to develop and validate your business idea, and end up with a solid long-term financial and growth plan and a perfected and professional Executive Summary.
They will be part of a community of passionate professionals who are looking forward to provide support.
The application period for both entrepreneurs and mentors is open now and until February 28th, 2022
