Project Partners

All of GIFT’s experiential programmes are designed around carefully selected real-world projects in collaboration with a project partner. Partners may be companies, governments or NGOs working in key sectors including agriculture, finance, energy, water, healthcare and others. Since 2006 GIFT has conducted over 30 programmes in 9 Asian countries.

What all partners have in common is a commercial product, service or concept they are keen to launch or scale-up that is not only financially viable but also has a positive impact on society or the environment. Through the programme methodology, participants apply their business acumen to produce business plans, investment proposals or strategic recommendations to project partners free of charge. In exchange, the partner acts a “host” for the group in-country, providing access to key stakeholders and working with GIFT to arrange site visits and meetings that will assist participants produce a valuable output. GIFT ensures that no financial costs are incurred by project partners as a result of the programme.

Contact GIFT if you have a meaningful project or business concept that would benefit from this ground-breaking approach.
