  • Travel South East Asia

    Malaysia is at the very heart of South East Asia. You can wake up at 7am and be on the beach in Thailand sipping on a fresh coconut with your feet in the sand 3 hours later. Your basecamp for the next 3 months will be buzzing Kuala Lumpur, where Incitement’s HQ is located, where you’ll be staying in a villa together with 14 others. The food here is hands down the best you’ll come across and the nightlife never boring. Ever.

    Connect with amazing people

    Connect with talented people from all over the world who’ll be joining Day One together with you. Attend powerful and inspirational events and hang out with speakers from Google, TED, iTunes, and UNESCO – just to name a few. You’ll make connection that’ll open up doors for you for the rest of your life.

    Work on impact projects

    One day you could be out on a 4WD, heading deep into the Malaysian jungle to provide solar powered lights to underprivileged, rural communities. Or you could be visiting a refugee school teaching refugee kids. The day after, you and your team could be deeply focused behind your laptops, working on tight deadlines for one many game changing social projects you’ll be working on.

    Top-notch leadership training

    Get trained by some of the brightest minds in the industry. For example Incitement cofounder Zikry Kholil, who is listed on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list, featured alongside Elon Musk, Sheryl Sandberg, and Malala on the Real Leaders Top 10, and winner of the Social Progress Award Malaysia 2016.

    Become an impact entrepreneur

    A purpose-driven entrepreneur, that is. As the only (nearly) developed country in South East Asia, Malaysia is on the cutting edge of Asia’s entrepreneurship and social innovation scene. It is one of the best places to learn social business and entrepreneurship, and an excellent place to build your network.
