Initiate spotlights next-gen talent, empowers start-ups, scale-ups and other entrepreneurs, and brings them together with established industry practitioners to help take the industry forward.
Over the past decade, the number of start-ups and the innovation environment in the energy sector of ASEAN have significantly expanded, as they have demonstrated that modern solutions and innovation are essential to achieving net-zero emissions in the future. As the energy industry progresses toward a more sustainable future, there is a significant need for all stakeholders to collaborate, transform and make room for modern solutions to ensure the success of ASEAN decarbonisation goals and the integration of renewables into the future grid.
Launched in 2014, Initiate was established to create a platform for innovators to have a voice in front of industry leaders as well as to ensure that key decision makers place energy innovation at the top of their agendas. Each year, Initiate brings together start-ups, entrepreneurs, accelerators and partners, public sector innovators, and investors from across the world onto a single region-wide platform to serve as a sounding board and marketplace for ideas that support the crucial energy innovation ecosystem.
