[PA101] Startup Support Toolkit
This is a learning portal for country offices and partners who are supporting youth-led SDG solutions.
We strive to work with partners to empower and invest in youth, so that they can accelerate the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through leadership, social innovation and entrepreneurship. Youth Co:Lab’s goal is to ensure that more startups succeed, produce strong results, and create positive change. We want them to make meaningful and long-lasting change in the communities where they work. In our ambition to ensure that no one is left behind, we constantly seek solutions and explore ways to help Asia and the Pacific’s young social entrepreneurs achieve success.
