All individuals and organisations are welcome to enter the competition, including businesses, non-profit organisations, and academic and public institutions.
At least one member of your team must be a citizen of an ASEAN country.
At least one member of your team must be able to communicate clearly and give presentations in English.
You do not need to be a legal entity at the time of application. If you are selected as a winner in the EPPIC Final Pitching Competition in September 2021 however, your organisation must register as a legal entity in one of the ASEAN member states in order to receive the incubation training and seed funding.
At least one senior member of your team should be available for the incubation activities delivered by EPPIC (e.g. training, coaching, mentoring, and consulting). Most of these will be delivered online, but some may also take place in person.
At least the founder or co-founder should be available in person for (1) Field visit to Mandalika or Samal Island from June to August 2021, (2) EPPIC Final Pitching in September 2021, and (3) the Demo Day at the end of the programme.
Please note that the format and dates of the training may evolve, depending on travel restrictions related to COVID-19.
Applications will be evaluated by a panel composed of experts from different disciplines (see Judges section on the website for details).
Entries will be selected based on four critical factors (viability and local potential, innovativeness, sustainability and scalability, and impact), as well as the composition of their teams.
