New incubation programme for SEA’s plastic waste startups launched
The story: Entrepreneurial support organisations across South and Southeast Asia are rolling out PXCC (Plastics X Circularity Curriculum), a programme in the region designed to fast-track startups that apply a circular economy approach to plastic waste management.
Developed by The Incubation Network, The Circulate Initiative, and Sagana, it is the first-ever curriculum on circular plastic waste management for pre-seed and seed-stage startups in South and Southeast Asia.
15 entrepreneurial support organisations across South and Southeast Asia have committed to pilot PXCC, exploring opportunities to roll it out in their programs.
To support the implementation of PXCC, organisations will receive tools such as a fundraising guide, sample pitch deck, and lesson plans, to turn learning into action.
There are 31 sub-modules across nine learning domains that can be delivered with mentorship and cross-learning from industry experts within The Incubation Network, as bite-sized on-demand learning, or in personalised lessons where entrepreneurs can focus on topics that align with their solutions.
The curriculum content and supporting materials were developed with input from entrepreneurial support organizations SocialAlpha and StartUpX, and have already been piloted by five entrepreneurs under the guidance of The Incubation Network.
