Startups are Invited to Participate in the DHL Fast Forward Challenge! (Extend an open invitation)

Dear startup ecosystem community of Philippines,

I am Richie from Study Hub Asia, currently representing DHL in reaching out to you regarding the Fast Forward Challenge. I would like to extend an open invitation to you and the startups in your programme, workspace, or network to participate in this challenge if you
have startups who are currently working on sustainable solutions for these areas:

  • Supply Chain Decarbonisation
  • Sustainable Packaging
  • Circular Economy Logistics
  • Smart Agriculture

Why should your startups join? Winners of the Fast Forward Challenge will be awarded with total cash prizes up to €65,000 and more importantly the startups will get global visibility and a chance to pilot the startup’s solution with DHL. DHL is the largest company for logistics, and they have been involved in innovations and digital transformation in the logistics industry.
If your startup is solving problems in any of the above areas join us at our upcoming Virtual Roadshows where we’ll be guiding startups in the Asia Pacific region who are likeminded on answering any questions, they may have with regards to the Fast Forward Challenge. Sign up for any of the roadshows @
