About Bluepreneur Asia Ventures
Bluepreneur Asia based in Malaysia and the United States, founded in August 2020, is a startup incubation and venture builder company for scaling impact startups solving ocean challenges and water sanitation issues. Bluepreneur Asia targets startups advancing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) 6 and 14. We specialize in accelerating idea, and growth-stage startups through our impact-designed programs.
We discovered that Southeast Asia and Asia Pacific regions in the sustainability entrepreneurship scene lack a structured sustainable financing and decentralized system of resources that is fundamental to scaling eco-businesses, in meeting important climate solutions.
In 2021, Bluepreneur rebranded and incorporated itself into Bluepreneur Asia Ventures. In 2022, Bluepreneur within its impact ecosystem introduced a pipeline of programs that is focused on achieving optimal social sustainability by improving livelihoods, impacting startups, and scaling more solutions.
Bluepreneur’s Bootcamp Accelerator: 2 weeks to 1-month program, connects idea-stage startups with Bluepreneur’s network of mentors, investors, and ocean experts. Startups learn social entrepreneurship acumens and are expected to have a functioning prototype, revenues or paid pilots, and a viable business model capable of generating profits.

The youths will gain consulting knowledge and skills in co-consulting startups, non-profit organizations, and firms in achieving optimal social sustainability goals.

Materiality Roadmap- Embedding Innovation within Blue Economy.
Our efforts to scale more sustainable-driven businesses and communities are driven by our abilities to power the startup markets of the future as we seek ways to accelerate positive progress and navigate rapidly evolving industries, while empowering the Blue Economy ecosystem.
In the midst of a rapidly changing economic and ocean sustainability landscape, we conducted a materiality assessment in 2021 in order to innovate urgent sustainability roadmaps for our startups and stakeholders. To date, our materiality assessment has resulted in youth empowerment, Blue Tech impact-focused programs and the expansion of idea-stage ventures. We identified topics critical to our growth as a result of this exercise. Moving forward, these areas drive our sustainability strategy, priorities, targets, and reporting. We recognise that materiality in the context of sustainability is a dynamic process towards harnessing a startup innovation mindset in powering a Blue Economy across the waters of Asia Pacific.
