Stephanie is an Associate at SecondMuse based in Southeast Asia. In her role, Stephanie is focused on leading regional engagement and designing collaborative partnerships and programs that build communities and networks to support social innovators in the Asia-Pacific. This has included her work on Frontier Innovators, a search for innovative social enterprises and supporting them to grow their business and scale in their impact and Frontier Incubators, a program to develop the capacities of incubators and accelerators in the region. With years of experience growing her own social ventures and connecting actors across public, private and civil society sectors in Southeast Asia, Stephanie brings a familiarity and deep understanding of the ecosystem within this space, facilitating innovative collaborations with SecondMuse to create new and shared value.
Stephanie is passionate about the power of communities, ecosystem building and using business as a force for good. Prior to joining SecondMuse, she co-founded Impact Hub Jakarta, a coworking space for purpose-driven entrepreneurs that is connected to a network across 100+ locations around the world and curated the first ASEAN Conference on Social Entrepreneurship in 2016, fostering collaboration among Southeast Asian countries towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Leveraging digital platforms for community engagement and social change, her previous roles at GlobalCitizen.org and StartSomeGood.com also saw her coordinate large-scale advocacy campaigns and festivals around the world, launch over 150 crowdfunding campaigns and deliver over 50 workshops and speaking engagements in the region.
Beyond her work, Stephanie is happiest in movement – whether that’s yoga, running, hiking, dancing or exploring the world. She loves discovering inspiring places to call home, learning how to eat like a local and turning strangers into friends.
