The HEAD Foundation supports DBS-NUS Social Venture Challenge Asia 2017 as the education sector champion

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 4th year, the Challenge aims to raise awareness of social entrepreneurship and build a robust community of social entrepreneurs and capacity builders across Asia.

The HEAD Foundation was invited to support the competition as the Sector Champion for the education sector. We will participate in the judging of the final round of the competition and will sponsor the cash prize for the best education solution in the enterprise category. By supporting the competition as a sector champion, THF hopes to encourage creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship in the creation of education solutions to address societal issues in 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.
