What is
Sustainable Entrepreneurship Program (SEP)?
 

Sustainable Entrepreneurship Program is a 6-month incubator program initiated and led by Impact Hub Taipei, with a mission to scale the impact of local youths that contribute towards the Sustainable Development Goals internationally. We do so by selecting 10 candidates, and connecting them to our wide network of partners that work with us on delivering a tailored, needs-based support to the finalists. The finalists will be sent to attend APYE (Asia Pacific Youth Exchange) during the ideation phase. And the business modeling phase follows the ideation phase. They’re also expected to attend the Social Venture Idea Competition at 17 Hearts Festival in Korea. Besides, our goal is to support the finalists to participate in regional or international competitions like Social Venture Challenge Asia, ASEAN Impact Challenge, Social Impact Award and etc.
