ASIA – EUROPE YOUTH ENTREPRENEURIAL MEET – 2016: ‘Artville’ by MICAns win second place.
The first edition of the Asia-Europe Youth Entrepreneurial Meet, hosted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Republic of Indonesia for the ASEM group of countries concluded on the 28th of October, 2016 at the Nusantara Hall of the Indonesian Ministry. Out of an estimated 700 applications from 52 countries, 20 social businesses were invited as delegations to the event.
Artville, a social business based out of Mysore, is an enterprise that works with indigenous producer communities to garner a market for locally produced, community products – ranging from pure, naturally sourced organics to traditionally handcrafted artifacts.
Founded by three friends, Aishwarya Sunaad (18 yrs), Kaushal KM (21 yrs) and Monish V (18 yrs), the business ensures financial inclusion for all its employees, who are mostly poor women.
Artville and its founders, being the youngest delegation in the event, (aged 18 and 21 respectively) represented India at the Meet and were placed second after Malaysia, after making it to the top 5 along with China, Indonesia, Czecho-Slovakia and Malaysia.
A report of the conference and its results is slated to be formally read at the scheduled meeting of the ASEM countries.
