Digital ASEAN Program - Cohort One

Grow Asia and Padang & Co

Together with MUFG and Yara, Grow Asia completed the first cohort of the Digital ASEAN Program, a program designed to accelerate the growth of promising, mature agritech startups by providing them with learning and mentoring opportunities, small grants, and opportunities to partner with corporates to support that growth. For the first cohort, we shortlisted seven startups from six countries: Australia, India, Indonesia, Israel, Myanmar, and the Philippines.

Throughout the course of eight months these promising startups were put through a remote mentoring process, which was done in combination with several in-person boot camps. A Demo Day was conducted at the end of the program to showcase the milestones that were achieved and the partnerships that were established along the way. This program booklet provides a brief summary of that journey.
