Join us for a peer-to-peer sharing session with regional accelerators and incubators in Asia-Pacific where we will discuss digitization best practices for accelerators, learn from your peers how they have adjusted their accelerator programs during COVID-19 pandemic and how do we ensure inclusive outreach to entrepreneurs from under-represented groups.

Please note that to promote interaction in the session, we limit number participants to maximum of 20. Therefore, we allow only one delegates from each organization.

Key takeaway:

  • To learn from accelerator peers about their experiences during COVID-19
  • To provide an opportunity to collaborate with other accelerators/incubators in the Asia-Pacific region
  • To share tools for digitization for accelerators
  • To build capacity of accelerators through sharing best practices

Date and Time: Tuesday, August 4, 2020,  09:30AM to 11:00AM BKK
