In partnership with Hubud: Ubud Co-working and Community Space in Ubud, Bali and Annika Linden Centre in Jakarta, the Social Venture Challenge ( is open to any Indonesian-based innovators who have a sustainable idea that could potentially tackle challenging social problems in their community and region.
