Allianz Group and Impact Hub announces the launch of the ‘Investment Ready Programme: Encouraging Future Generations’. It is an acceleration programme tailored for purpose driven entrepreneurs that aims to foster social inclusion of youth across four countries, namely Brazil, Germany, Malaysia and Turkey.
The programme is designed to equip social entrepreneurs with everything they need to know to attract the right capital for their organisation. Over the duration of six months, ten teams from the four countries will engage in a systematic review of their business model, strategy and team before crafting a validated growth and investment plan.
Participating teams will receive individual support and coaching by experienced entrepreneurs, investors, Allianz mentors and content experts. Apart from that, all participants will be part of two multi-day workshop sessions in February and June in Munich. They also have the chance to pitch in front of a jury for the Allianz Future Generations Award (RM199,000) at the end of the programme.
“Pursuing innovative solutions is part and parcel of Allianz Malaysia’s business strategy. This programme, as well as our partnership with SuperCharger for their fintech accelerator programme, demonstrates our belief in the potential of new ideas to address business and societal challenges.” states Zakri Khir, CEO of Allianz Malaysia Berhad.
