ACCELERATING SUSTAINABILITY THROUGH BUSINESS INTEGRATIONS
 

APPLICATIONS ARE OPEN - DEADLINE: September 6, 2021

SCALE YOUR STARTUP AND CONTRIBUTE TO THE UNSDGs

IMPACT KOMMONS, Asia’s first UNSDGs-focused accelerator, offers a platform for impact startups and technology companies to collaborate with New World Group businesses, sustainability experts and global partners to scale solutions that fulfill United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

A premium brand infused with a unique personality, New World Group’s core business areas include investment in property and property development, and investment in and/or operation of roads, commercial aircraft leasing, construction, insurance, hotels and other strategic businesses. 

 

New World’s mission is to create and orchestrate our creativity and social innovation for the next generation. Through the Impact Kommons program, we aim to work with startups and technology companies to help solve problem statements shared by our business units. Our focus isn't on classes as you would find in a traditional accelerator. Our focus is to promote collaboration among New World Group businesses and innovations to solve real business problems through project management of these opportunities.
