ASEAN Business Youth Association
LEAPS 2021

Discover connections with every new leap


The past year has been a tumultuous time for youths and businesses alike. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated existing inequalities and posed unprecedented challenges to our world, forcing youths, organizations, and countries to rethink how we can build resilience through sustainability. 

The LEAPS Youth Challenge aims to help tertiary students sharpen their business acumen and knowledge of ASEAN markets while enabling companies to gain different perspectives from youths in building business resiliency through sustainable strategies.

To celebrate the accomplishments of the youth teams and their mentors over the past months, Talent @ Switch and ABYA hosted Demo Day 2021 on 30th October, Saturday, between 10:00-13:00 hours (GMT +8).
