Sustainable Entrepreneurship Program is a 3-month intensive incubator program initiated and led by Impact Hub Taipei and worked together with Foundation for Women's Right Promotion and Development, with a mission to scale the impact of local youths that contribute towards the Sustainable Development Goals and with gender perspectives. We do so by targeting to select 30 candidates, and connecting them to our wide network of partners that work with us on delivering a tailored, needs-based support and 3-month programs. The finalists will have a chance be sent to attend Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) in New York in 2020 or else international conferences or forums, or even be matched to several organizations, social enterprises or big corporations who drive SDGs together as interns.
