The world's first full-scale accelerator program for teenagers is coming to Asia! In 2018, 1,200 teams from 26 countries participated, and 8 teams secured USD 50,000 investment each, plus 2 months in an acceleration program.
'Young Founders Summit @SEA is the regional round, giving teens in Asia the chance to win:
1. USD 5,000 in Singapore
2. A direct pass (Sponsored trip to LA) to compete in the finals of Young Founders Summit Global @UCLA in 2019, bypassing thousands of applicants. Here, they will stand to win USD50,000 + entry to a 2-month accelerator program.
What makes this competition different is that it's not just a pitch competition, it's a pathway to an actual accelerator program where teenagers set up real companies, run them, and get connected to more investors. One of the past winners from the U.S. have recently been featured in Techcrunch and have since raised $500K. Another, Agronet from Malawi, is already on its way to making USD100K monthly gross profit.
