MentorshipWe connect you to a curated set of business professionals to help encourage, coach and hold you accountable during the accelerator program.

The i2i program was launched in 2013 as Hong Kong's first social accelerator program. i2i encompasses all of SOW Asia’s impact sector focuses and aims to accelerate social businesses from proof of concept to be ready for investment to scale their impact. As of 2015, the i2i Program is supported by J.P. Morgan.
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
After the initial screening, SOW Asia will contact you to do deeper-dive diagnostics and identify key business areas to focus on.
Accepted applicants will be grouped into the intensive program (Summer / Fall and Winter cohorts) that best suits their needs.
