Asia Centre for Enterprise (ACE) will host a public celebration of liberty aimed at Advancing Liberty & Markets in Asia, by bringing together 200 change makers, including some of the best liberal minds from Asia and around the world. The second Asia Liberty Forum will provide a much needed platform to identify critical issues plaguing Asia, explore strategies to face the challenges ahead, and generate ways to strengthen the liberal movement in this part of the world. ACE aspires to make the Asia Liberty Forum a crucial catalyst for connecting and supporting intellectual entrepreneurs in Asia.
Over two days, distinguished intellectuals, think tank leaders, policy makers, business leaders, and change makers will present their work and views on various facets of modern Asia. The forum provides a unique opportunity to interact closely with distinguished experts across various fields; some who are tackling Asia’s unique development challenges, and others who bring international experience and perspectives towards charting our future course.
The objective of the two-day forum is to:
- Highlight the inspiring work “Freedom Champions” have been doing in recent years throughout Asia
- Feature innovative projects from around the globe that think tank leaders can replicate at home
- Provide insights to those who are trying to affect change in some of Asia’s most troubled places.
Asia Centre for Enterprise is a social change seed partnership launched by Atlas Economic Research Foundation and Centre for Civil Society in 2012 to identify and support individuals and organisations that promote liberal ideas and policies in Asia. ACE will play the role in Asia that Atlas Foundation plays globally, acting as a mentor and intellectual angel investor.
Our vision is to help create a beaming Asia under the leadership of entrepreneurial visionaries interested in liberal ideas and action.
Our mission is to discover idealists and activists in Asia, empower them through mentorship and training, support them by providing start up grants to develop and scale up their ideas into action and connect them with liberal organisations and individuals globally.
