UNDP and UNICEF are partnering to empower Asia-Pacific’s next generation with 21st century skills, engagement, and entrepreneurship. Together UNDP and UNICEF will promote systemic entrepreneurial skill-development, flexible financing and blended mentoring to enable the most vulnerable to lead community initiatives and social enterprises.
This includes scaling up successful youth social entrepreneurship development initiatives, such as UNDP’s Youth Co:Lab initiative within the national system. Co-created in 2017 by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Citi Foundation, Youth Co:Lab aims to establish a common agenda for Asia-Pacific countries to invest in and empower youth to accelerate implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through leadership, social innovation, and entrepreneurship.
By developing 21st century skills, catalysing and sustaining youth-led startups and social enterprises across the region, Youth Co:Lab is positioning adolescents and young people front and centre in order to solve the region’s most pressing challenges. In addition to supporting youth entrepreneurship, Youth Co:Lab also works closely with multiple stakeholders across the region, including governments, civil society and the private sector, to strengthen the entrepreneurship ecosystem and policy support to better enable young people to take the lead on new solutions that will help meet the SDGs. Youth Co:Lab is also positioned to provide opportunities for adolescents and young people from marginalised communities with ideas and solutions for challenges raised in their communities.
After a successful pilot in 2018, 2019 and continuously in 2020, Malaysia is running the fourth year of Youth Co:Lab in 2021. The online programme consists of A: three sets of 2-day ideation bootcamps, B: a one-month incubation programme, and C: a 2-day national dialogue.
We are calling all youth-led social enterprises based in Malaysia to amplify their growth through developing minimum viable products (MVPs), finding product market fit, and at the same time making them investment ready. The programme will help social entrepreneurs to answer these questions:
Hence, by targeting youth-led social enterprises residing in Malaysia, between the age of 15-30, which are at the ideation stage and are looking to get ready to develop MVPs, and pitch to potential investors, the programme aims to achieve these objectives;
At the end of Youth Co:Lab Malaysia 2021, 2 winning solutions each from two individuals/teams, will qualify to represent Malaysia at the Asia-Pacific Regional Dialogue Youth Co:Lab Summit 2022 to compete in the regional Social Innovation Challenge. Meanwhile in between, they will receive guidance and mentorship through the Springboard Programme organized by the Youth team from Bangkok Regional Hub.
