The DBS-NUS Social Venture Challenge Asia is an Asia-wide competition for social enterprises, open to any member of the public. Organised by NUS Enterprise and DBS Foundation, the Challenge aims to identify and support innovative new ideas and existing social ventures that have the potential to generate positive, scalable and sustainable social impact. Now in its 5th year, the Challenge aims to raise awareness of social entrepreneurship and build a robust community of social entrepreneurs and capacity builders across Asia.
The Challenge also provides multi-dimensional support for budding social entrepreneurs and builds capacity through public education in social entrepreneurship. Participants will be supported and mentored by some of the most experienced practitioners in this field. Furthermore, participants who qualify will have the opportunity to travel to Singapore for mentoring & coaching with experts, before facing the final round of judging. The Challenge will culminate with a prestigious awards ceremony.
With a dedicated learning platform and meaningful networks as well as increased awareness and support for budding social entrepreneurs, the DBS-NUS Social Venture Challenge Asia will accelerate the impact of winning entries to solve today’s most pressing social problems.
