Participate in SWAP 2013
Following LGT Venture Philanthropy’s successful launch of the Smiling World Accelerator Program (SWAP) across Southeast Asia in 2012 and 2013, we are very delighted to announce the next call for applications for the SWAP 2013 in Indonesia (www.lgtvp.com/swap).
This program is being supported by our valued local partners: Global Entrepreneurship Program Indonesia (gepindonesia.org) and selected angel investors from the region.
The SWAP is our tailored 9-24 month program for entrepreneurs with businesses in the fields of healthcare, education, renewable energy, agriculture or Information and Communication Technologies who serve or benefit disadvantaged people and who seek to take their organizations to the next level of growth and impact.
The SWAP provides customized financial support (up to USD 50,000 per organization), dedicated on-the-ground business mentoring and access to international networks. To further increase access to adequate financial support, networks, and business know-how, LGT Venture Philanthropy connects suitable SWAP candidates with reputable local Angel Investors (www.lgtvp.com/swai) for co-investment opportunities, links them to qualified mentors via our Mentorship network, and shares proprietary and best-in-class tools and documents from our internal Resource Platform.
In 2012-2013, LGT Venture Philanthropy selected and supported 6 early-stage organizations with an average investment of USD 35’000 each and the technical mentoring support of one full-time on-the-ground business accelerator consultant.
If you are interested in applying to be part of this program, please fill out the application documents and submit them to firstname.lastname@example.org
