Frontier Innovators applications close this week

News 22 Sep 2017

If you are a business which aims to deliver and achieves impact in the Asia-Pacific region, the Frontier Innovators initiative is an opportunity to be recognised for your efforts and to create more change.

In partnership with the Australian Government’s innovationXchange (iXc), Frontier Innovators is a search for innovative businesses in Asia-Pacific, which tirelessly deliver impact through their work.

In July, the Australian Minister for Foreign Affairs, the Hon. Julie Bishop MP (pictured), launched the Frontier Innovators, the first part of the iXc’s $15 million initiative supporting social entrepreneurship in the region.

Up to 15 Frontier Innovators with businesses that are delivering impact in the region will receive funding of up to A$100,000, along with three to six months of tailored support and training in story-telling and impact measurement to help them scale their business and impact.

By supporting innovators who are delivering impact through market-based models, opportunities can be created for private sector capital to be invested in ways that contribute to development outcomes, and help fill this gap.

Frontier Innovators will find and elevate 15 innovators who demonstrate how catalytic capital has the potential to scale businesses to grow their impact.

If you are one of the many businesses throughout the Pacific delivering impact, do apply for this fantastic opportunity by September 30.

Visit Frontier Innovators for more information and to apply for the grants.
