IT’S TIME TO PLAY YOUR ROLE IN THE

FUTURE OF ASIA


Are you an aspiring social entrepreneur with an early stage social venture? Do you have an innovative idea that can improve the world around you? Here’s your chance to shine! The DBS-NUS Social Venture Challenge Asia is back once again, with over SGD150,000 to be awarded to top passionate aspiring and early stage social entrepreneurs.

Want to level up your business model? Join the Purpose-Driven Approach to Business Model Design: Workshop for Social Entrepreneurs facilitated by Director of the NUS Entrepreneurship Centre (a part of NUS Enterprise), Prof Wong Poh Kam, to learn how different business models can be developed to achieve social impacts goals, and how tensions between achieving social impacts and meeting financing requirements can be resolved through the design of an appropriate stakeholder model that generates a “shared-purpose” between the social entrepreneur and other stakeholders.
