Raise defines Social Enterprises (SEs) as business entities set up with clear social goals; and where there is clear management intent and resources allocated to fulfil their social objectives.

Social entrepreneurship in Singapore is still in its early days.Social enterprises provide business solutions to address unmet and emerging social needs and gaps. They have the potential to make a difference, create value and solve social challenges in sustainable ways. SEs have grown to become part of a broader system to address social needs. In an emerging trend, they also fulfil the aspirations of a new generation of Singaporeans who are passionate to do good through means other than charities, and as a part of their daily lives.

President’s Challenge Social Enterprise Networking

This networking event is held biennially to foster greater collaborations among stakeholders and Social enterprises and on alternate years, an award ceremony is held. The President’s Challenge Social Enterprise Award (PCSEA) is a prestigious accolade conferred by the President’s Office to honour and recognise exceptional social enterprises for their contributions made to the local community.

The conversations for the President’s Challenge Social Enterprise Networking (PCSEN) bring to light the many ways that corporates can make social enterprises part of their sustainability journey. Panel discussions encourage the sharing of experiences in assimilating social enterprises into their core businesses, and on how those efforts have translated into business growth while doing social good sustainably.
