DBS Foundation Social Enterprise
Summit 2017

Social innovation can be a product, production process, or technology. It is also so much more – a strategy, a principle, an idea, a piece of legislation, a social movement, an intervention, or some combination of them. They have a social purpose and they strengthen civil society.

About the Summit

DBS Foundation is proud to present our second regional summit for social entrepreneurs. Entitled, “Innovate for Impact”, the Summit will focus on innovation, in particular social innovation. With the rise of social entrepreneurship, disruptive technologies, and greater access to opportunities for the larger society, this is a timely theme for our Summit.

The Summit will bring together social entrepreneurs and other industry players from various industries. Leading entrepreneurs and changemakers have been invited to share how they have imbued innovation into their businesses. The Summit is further designed to bring leaders and practitioners from different fields to share their expertise and personal journeys through masterclasses and in-depth conversations. The Summit culminates with the ‘open mic’ pitching by social entrepreneurs to invited impact investors.

Since 2014, the DBS Foundation has been advocating for and nurturing social enterprises in the region and this Summit further exemplifies our effort to continue in doing so.
