Heritas Capital is pleased to serve as an industry partner in the Amplifier mentorship programme launched by Temasek Trust ecosystem entities, the Centre for Impact Investing and Practices (CIIP) and Philanthropy Asia Alliance (PAA), to support impact-focused startups aiming for positive disruption.
The Amplifier aims to address Asia’s sustainable development challenges by enabling promising impact start-ups to bridge the ‘valley of death’ through building an ecosystem of industry players to catalyse philanthropic capital, mobilise collective action, and forge new pathways to create positive impact.
The Amplifier is a 12-month programme focused on capacity building and developing a path to sustainability for high impact start-ups. A pool of catalytic philanthropic capital will also be made available to qualifying mentees to supercharge their growth and scale their impact. The mentor-mentee relationship is at the core of the Amplifier programme. Mentees will receive hands-on, practical mentorship and be able to access a global network of industry professionals and potential commercial opportunities through the year. Mentors will support mentees by providing strategic guidance and acting as or identifying reference clients, while gaining early access to innovative business offerings that may address their own problem statements.
“Heritas is an active contributor to the ecosystem of mentoring and investing in impactful innovations and enterprises. We are pleased to serve as mentors alongside fellow industry partners 500 Global, Antler, Nurasa, SATS, Schneider Electric, SOSV, and UOB Venture Management, and other partners Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth, Deloitte Singapore, Temasek Life Sciences Accelerator, ABC Impact, PwC Singapore, Allen & Overy, Rajah & Tann Asia, and WongPartnership LLP, to collaborate and nurture the next generation of impactful startups,.
