DBS Foundation champions social entrepreneurship – businesses for good.

We believe that businesses can play a key role in solving complex social issues in a sustainable way, contributing to a more inclusive Asia. DBS Foundation works with social enterprises in Singapore, India, Indonesia, China, Taiwan and Hong Kong to help them scale their business and impact.


What is a social enterprise?

Social enterprises are the future of businesses – where businesses pursue both a profit and impact bottomline. Such businesses seek to be financially sustainable while solving critical social and environment problems through the operations of their business and employment of people at risk or in need.

Increasingly, stakeholders of businesses – customers, employees and shareholders are seeking environmental and social impact in addition to financial returns. Creating social impact should not be left to governments or charities. Instead, businesses that generate sustainable revenue can and should play an important role.
