The initiative aims at helping the next generation of leaders from its regional “seeds” to learn about the future of tech careers and encourage entrepreneurship.
The seminar forms a key part of the Seeds for the Future Accelerator camp. It has started from 29 August to 2 September in Singapore. Seeds for the Future is Huawei’s global flagship CSR project in service since 2008.

The program has so far attracted over 12,000 students from 137 countries and regions to participate over the last 14 years.
So far, Huawei has trained a total of 203 participants in Singapore under the Seeds for the Future program initiative.
Besides, Huawei Asia Pacific Seeds for the Future program 2022 first kicked off in Bangkok on August 19. During a 9-day boot camp, 120 outstanding students from 16 countries across the APAC enjoyed a cross-cultural digital journey in Thailand.
Meanwhile, 33 out of 120 were selected for the Acceleration Camp. During their stay in Singapore, the participants will be guided by entrepreneurial leaders from the tech sector. This will inspire them to consider the practicability and realization of their ideas.
