BAPSEA stands for the Swedish Energy Agency’s new Business Accelerator Program Southeast Asia. The first 11 Swedish SMEs have been accepted into this new program in Southeast Asia, including Unipower. The selection process for this program was very competitive and Unipower’s “performance and potential in the energy sector stood out among the many applicants” (quote from the decision).
The BAPSEA program runs for 18 months. During this period, Unipower will have access to resources, guidance and networking opportunities with industry leaders, government officials and potential business partners. Through workshops, seminars and customised consulting services, Unipower will gain deeper insights into the energy markets in Southeast Asia, while receiving guidance on how to identify growth opportunities specific to the region.
Expert advice from Business Sweden and delegation trips are also included.
The program is managed by Anders Larssson at Unipower.
