Tech In Asia

Quest Ventures and Singapore Centre for Social Enterprise (raiSE) have launched the Sustainable Impact Accelerator (SIA), a program targeting seed-stage startups in the sustainability sector that are eyeing funding within the next 12 months.

The accelerator, which runs from June to August, will provide participants up to US$40,000 in funding on top of access to mentorship and networking opportunities. They will also get “family benefits,” which give access to startup-focused services.

“With the growing appetite for sustainable investments, the accelerator program will benefit both investors and startups in tackling important social issues and gaps,” said James Tan, managing partner of Quest Ventures.
