YPO, the global leadership community of more than 30,000 chief executives who combined lead businesses and organizations contributing USD9 trillion in annual revenue, and RISE, a leading corporate innovation powerhouse, today announced they are partnering to engage and combine their resources and networks to create positive impact, support corporations and startups, and elevate innovation in APAC and beyond.
Launched in 2016, RISE has quickly established itself as one of the largest corporate innovation startups in Southeast Asia. Working with corporates and governments across the region, the organization has helped accelerate innovation and drive outcomes for more than 400 companies and acted as a springboard for over 4,000 successful startups with the impact of over USD1.2 billion through its unique corporate accelerator, intrapreneur university, venture building services and experiential conference.
“We’re excited to partner with RISE, providing our members, who constantly strive to be better leaders and better people, access to the RISE network’s outstanding insights, expertise and innovative ideas,” said Xavier Mufraggi, CEO, YPO.
“At RISE, we’re on a mission to drive 1% GDP for Southeast Asia to help the region recover from the economic devastation experienced as a result of the pandemic. We’re looking forward to uniting our efforts with YPO and its vast network of executive leaders to drive positive change through strategic innovation,” shared Supachai Kid Parchariyanon, Co-founder and CEO, RISE.
As a result of this new partnership, RISE will offer YPO members customized corporate innovation workshops, virtual workshop collaboration opportunities, assessments for corporate innovation readiness and preferential access to the annual RISE Corporate Innovation Summit. YPO will facilitate introductions between YPO chapters and RISE’s corporate networks to explore innovation collaboration opportunities and planning and execution of local events and programming for members.
