KAIROS ASEAN

“What if the world’s most influential leaders were friends 20 years ago, working together to tackle some of the biggest problems?”
Kairos ASEAN is a highly curated community of young entrepreneurial talents across Southeast Asia. As part of the global Kairos Society with supporters such as Bill Clinton, Richard Branson and Peter Diamandis, it challenges the next generation of entrepreneurs to solve big problems where governments and the industries have previously failed.
Launched in 2014, Kairos ASEAN has expanded to 6 countries with over 100 members and mentors. It offers a network of executives, strategic investors, advisors and fellow entrepreneurs to support young individuals who are building businesses and meaningful ventures that change the world. Regional initiatives such as the K360 Business Mission and Kairos Sharing Table offers members the opportunity to be connected both locally and beyond.
