Synergy Social Ventures

Synergy Social Ventures is a non-profit organization supporting entrepreneurial solutions to global problems. We work to support early-stage social ventures in Asia creating impact in areas such as:

  • Poverty reduction through economic development
  • Increasing access to essential goods and services such as clean water, food, energy, housing, affordable healthcare and improved education
  • Environmental sustainability in agriculture and waste and resource management

What We Do

Synergy supports the work of social ventures directly as well as working to build a supportive ecosystem in which social ventures in Asia can develop and create more impact for society. We do this by:

  • Providing no cost advisory support to social ventures
  • Helping philanthropists support social ventures through philanthropic investment strategies
  • Working on developing a stronger support ecosystem for social ventures in our region and building connections between Asian and global actors in the social venture sector

We currently support social ventures in Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, Nepal, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.

We’re excited about the release of Accelerating Youth-Led Social Ventures – a resource guide for organizations providing capacity building support to social ventures in East and Southeast Asia led by youth entrepreneurs. Although this guide draws on our experience working with entrepreneurs in this region, it is also relevant to capacity building organizations globally.
