Developing a Framework for Promoting the Growth of Digital Startups in ASEAN

Status: ongoing.

ASEAN Digital Master Plan 2025, recently adopted at the First ASEAN Digital Ministers Meeting (ADGMIN) in January 2021, placed a high priority on the development of a framework that encourage the development and growth of digital start-ups in ASEAN to support the increased capacity for business and people to participate in the digital economy.

The project will identify and verify the key factors that affect the growth of digital startups in ASEAN and, based on the findings, develop a policy framework to promote digital startups. It is envisaged that once the framework is established and adopted, relevant ministries in the ASEAN Member States (AMS) will make best practice-based policies that will nurture/foster startup ecosystems, particularly in promoting growth of digital startups in their respective countries.
