TERMS OF REFERENCE
Youth play a crucial role in today's economy, with more innovations and ideas originating from teenagers and young adults. According to the Guardian report (2019), more than 80% of the startups in 2019 were dominated by youth-led groups, which is a testament to their resilience. Furthermore, there is mounting evidence pointing out that youth-led entrepreneurship/venture has a more robust rate of success in terms of time, social impacts, and financial results (Kim et al., 2020; Viguria, 2015). Not to mention, since the majority of the ASEAN member states have a sizable population of youth under 35, instilling the core values of social entrepreneurship would be a good step towards economic education in this increasingly globalised world. The effectiveness of the social enterprise model is evident as, since last year, social enterprises have been at the forefront in addressing COVID-19, from creating biometric identification systems, scaling community-based screening until delivering microfinance loans to the extremely poor and vulnerable (Bonnici & Raja 2020). This power to address COVID-19 is also present in the ASEAN region. Many young social entrepreneurs are redesigning their operations, skills, and creativity to help the local community mitigate the pandemic's social and economic impacts (SDSN Youth 2020; UNDP 2020).
Considering the imperatives and potential ability of social enterprises in leading the recovery process post-COVID, ASEAN Foundation is committed to acknowledging the contribution of social enterprise in leading the recovery process and solving the socio-economical problem in the region. Thus, to support social enterprises in the region, the ASEAN Foundation, with the support from GIZ on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and SAP, proudly delivers ASEAN Social Enterprise Development Programme (ASEAN SEDP). The programme aims to provide social enterprises with more significant opportunities to improve their ventures through structured capacity building, mentorship, financing, and access to marketplaces. This year, ASEAN-SEDP is focusing on the theme of "Social Innovations for the Sustainable ASEAN Community". The programme is targeting a total of 20 selected social enterprises from 10 ASEAN Member States (AMS) with innovative projects that focus on six SDGs: (1) No Poverty, (2) Good Health and Well-Being, (3) Quality Education, (4) Gender Equality, (5) Responsible Consumption and Production, and (6) Climate Action.
As the programme is currently implemented and approaching the final month of the programme, the ASEAN Foundation plans to conduct a demo day to select three social enterprises that will receive seed grants from the programme. In addition, after the demo day, the ASEAN Foundation also plan to implement a showcase day to promote the social enterprises under ASEAN SEDP through webinar and masterclasses relevant with the work areas of social enterprises.
